Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore Apologizes for Laggy Windows Phone 7 Updates

The Windows Phone 7 update problems have become so acute that Joe Belfiore, director of the Windows Phone Program for Microsoft, has apologized in a comment on Microsoft’s developer site.

The WP7 update problems plaguing Microsoft. The update was delayed several times, and then a preliminary patch had problems. And many users also have been frustrated because they have yet to receive the upgrade, which would allow features such as copying and pasting on WinP7 devices.

In response to an earlier presentation, Belfiore said he was wrong for saying that most people had received the February update and for saying the updates were complete. Here’s more of what Belfiore wrote:

We know it’s been frustrating to wait for features/fixes and (probably worse) to hear little from us on specific dates. We’re sorry the process has been rocky. The “where’s my phone update” table is our first step to try to remedy this in the face of technical problems that have made our first wave of updates take longer than we expected. We know the table would benefit greatly from more detail, and we’re hoping to add more to it by working with the Operators who own the “testing” phase to get more clarity. If your phone is shown in “scheduling”, it’ll be worth checking the table next week.

Here’s Belfiore’s full comment:
