Microsoft advocate confirms temporay halt
Microsoft has stopped shipping updates for Samsung Omnia 7 phones and its Windows Phone 7 OS. The temporary halt was confirmed by Microsoft consumer writer Michael Stroh in a posting in his blog. Stroh gave no specific time frame for when updates would again roll out.
"We've temporarily stopped sending updates to Omnia 7s," Stroh stated in his blog. "The team discovered a technical issue with the update package for this model. The work of fixing and testing the package is nearly done, and the team hopes to resume update deliveries soon."
This was not the first time Microsoft has had problems with its mobile OS and the Omnia. Updating problems were also encountered back in February. [via WMPoweruser]
