At MIX10, Todd Brix revealed that Microsoft will be delivering a Windows Update-like service for all Windows Phone 7 Series phones. The update service in WP7S is designed to give users improvements to operating system quickly and reliably. It’ll be prioritized first on delivering performance, stability and performance improvements and when appropriate, both in terms of new software trends and hardware capabilities, update service will also be pushing out new features and additional functionality. Microsoft will reveal what users should expect in terms of update schedules closer to retail availability but there’ll be a combination of both small and large updates as well as structured and out-of-band updates. Coming from a mobile operating system which requires flashing the “ROM”, this’s a big investment and improvement for Microsoft who seems to have all the right cards to the best hand in the mobile industry.
