Winrumors have received an internal email from AT&T which strongly suggest AT&T will start pushing out the pre-NoDO and NoDo update for the LG Quantum and Samsung Focus on the 19th April. Surprisingly HTC Surround owners will have to wait till mid-May for their update.
Interestingly the email notes that while the headline feature is copy and paste, AT&T have also added their own â€œadditional functionalityâ€ unique to the network.
See the email after the break.
Effective April 19, 2011, new Microsoft maintenance release updates will be available to AT&T customers with existing LG Quantum and Samsung Focus Windows Phone 7 devices. Approved updates for the HTC Surround are scheduled for availability in mid-May and will be communicated once approved.
Microsoft is planning to release two new Maintenance Release (7008 & 7390) updates that require a three-phase installation. The update installation process includes:
â€¢ Installing Zune software
â€¢ Installing the 1st (7008) MR which prepares the WP7 device to accept the enhanced (7309 â€œNoDoâ€) update
â€¢ Installing the 2nd (7390 â€œNoDoâ€) MR update that adds new device functionality
Customers will receive a notification starting on 4/19 advising them of an available update for their phone. Once the customer completes the 7008 update, they will be able to immediately update their devices to 7390 (NoDo) by disconnecting and re-tethering their phone to their PC. If the customer does not immediately update their device to 7390 (NoDo), they will receive a notification that an update is available within three days.
The Headliner for the 7390 (NoDo) MR is that it adds Copy/Paste functionality but additional functionality is included that is unique to AT&T.
My CSP will be updated for launch. If customers should have additional questions or issues with this update, please refer the customer to LG or Samsung for additional support following standard policies and procedures.
Installation of the 1st (7008) maintenance release is required before the 2nd (7390 â€œNoDoâ€) maintenance release can be successfully loaded on the Windows Phone 7 devices.
Thanks David for the tip.
