I was surprised to get an update alert on my Mozart WP7 yesterday – and then eager to get home to find out what was in store for me.
Once plugged in to Zune I discovered I had two updates waiting for me:
· 7.10.8112 Windows Phone 7.5 Consumer Refresh 2
· 7.10.8773 Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh – codename “Tango”
These updates make the following changes:
· Better media messaging
· Ability to send ringtones via MMS
· Export and manage contacts to SIM card
· Support for low-cost devices with 256 MB RAM and low clock CPU
· New wallpapers
· Letter indexing
· More reliable notifications
· Attachment download with Microsoft Exchange 2003 Server
· Faster numeric PIN response
The whole update process took about 23 minutes.
I understand there are two more updates to come, 8779 and 7.8, and these will be the final updates for Windows Phone 7, but I have no idea when they will be released. So watch this space.
