Microsoft confirms delay of March Windows Phone 7 update Microsoft has confirmed today that its March "NoDo" update for Windows Phone 7 will be postponed for weeks following the complete disaster that was the rollout of their February update.
CEO Steve Ballmer had initially said the update would be hitting smartphones the first week of March.

Spokesman Eric Hautala, the leader of the team behind the updates, says that the update will now be headed to smartphones in the last week of March, but possibly a bit earlier.

For the February update, Microsoft acknowledged that up to 10 percent of customers had issues with the update, especially those with Samsung devices.

This time around, the company will "take some extra time to ensure the update process meets our standards, your standards, and the standards of our partners."

The March update will add copy/paste, CDMA support, and Marketplace search.

Well i guess for windows phone 7 owners the most important feature will be the performance upgrade resuming apps and games and bug fixes.

Different thing for Iphone and Android users that don't care about performance but copy past wich thay use every day. lol

Other good thing about non wimo 7 users is that they need copy past to copy the home page of operative sistems they don't have, but look nice in there UI. lol

In the future Android GingaTrans and IOS1001 will have copy past in 3D. ALl the media will applaud and even say ..wooooow the future is now. lol

Aww, I heard they were getting rid of the "brick self on update" feature... :(
But it's probably just another rumor *fingers crossed!*
