Still Long NoDo Waits For Some: End of April for Deutsche Telekom

As Microsoft’s NoDo update – its first feature-packed update for Windows Phone 7 – begins to roll out, we’re taking note of the varying wait times in store for different classes of users. Yesterday we told you that carrier-unbranded phones were first in line for the new code, while devices tied to their networks could be in for a bit of a longer wait, not seeing NoDo for a couple more weeks. It looks like the wait could be even longer than we anticipated for some WP7 users, as Deutsche Telekom has tweeted to its users that they could have over a month more to go, with the update not arriving until late April.

The good news is it doesn’t look yet like any carriers are totally holding back up the update, as they could elect to do as long as the prior pre-NoDo mini update went through. Instead, the deployment is going out in waves, so inevitably some WP7 users will be waiting longer than others. Canadian WP7 devices on Telus will start getting NoDo next week, for example, but this month-long Deutsche Telekom delay is easily the least optimistic of the forecasts so far.

We looked at a way for HTC devices, at least, to jump the queue, pretending to be carrier-unbranded, and try their hands at getting NoDo during this first wave. If you simply can’t wait any longer, have a compatible phone, and are comfortable modifying it, check out the instructions we posted about earlier today.
