Fantastic. Earlier this morning we reported that the first Windows Phone 7 update brings no noticeable new features whatsoever. It’s more of a pre-update in anticipation of the long-awaited copy-and-paste upgrade.
Well, spare a thought for Samsung Omnia 7 owners. According to various online reports, the update often freezes on the Samsung Omnia 7, and has even bricked a number of handsets.
One user contacted Pocket-Lint via email, saying: “My WP7 isn't working either after this damn update! Can't hard reset and T-Mobile UK hasn't a clue.”
WinPhoneSupport confirmed: “Yes, we have had other have the same issue with the Omnia 7. We are looking into this issue.” Presumably the guy was too rushed off his feet to compose a proper, intelligible sentence.
This doesn’t bode very well for when Microsoft starts rolling out actual updates for Windows Phone 7.
