Windows Phone 7: 2011 Update – Release Coming Soon?

By Updated on

We have some good news for those of you with a Windows Phone 7 handset, as we have some more details on the first major update which is thought to be on the way for devices soon. If recent rumors are true, the update could be happening next month.

As reported from BGR, specific details on the update are very scarce at the moment, but the tech site has picked up upon the fact that Microsoft has already listed an article, which informs users what to do should an update encounter problems whilst installing.

The article is dated January 27th, and you can view it freely via Microsoft’s support page here. We knew that an update for Windows Phone 7 was due out in January, but it never happened – so could this information from Microsoft suggest that the update is finally set in stone for February? – let’s hope so.

A possible update in February is further backed up by this article we’ve come across over at WMPowerUser, which reveals that the rumored release date for the update is February 7th – a Monday just for your reference. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you more news on this soon. You may also want to read our previous, but very relevant article here, as it gives you information on forthcoming WP7 updates, which are codenamed ‘Mango’ and ‘Apollo’.
