Updates: delivering to Telefonica, scheduling Deutsche Telekom

Hello everyone. Yesterday we began delivering the Windows Phone 7.5 update to LG Optimus 7 phones on Telefonica in Spain.  We’re also now scheduling it for Samsung Omnia 7 phones on Deutsche Telekom.    

In addition, we’re now delivering Mango to 100 percent of eligible phones around the world, regardless of carrier. (In other words, to everything that’s not listed as “scheduling” or “testing” on Where’s My Phone Update?). 

As I mentioned last week, we’re also sending out “firmware” updates to some phones around the world, so don’t be surprised if you see another update notification pop up on your phone in the coming days. Firmware is software provided to us by handset makers that’s designed to do things like improve your phone’s performance, fix bugs, or even activate new features (if your phone hardware supports it). Not everybody will receive or require a firmware update: It all depends on your country, carrier, and phone model.

See you next week.
