Microsoft Says Nothing Changed Windows Phone Update-Wise


Nothing has changed in regard to how we work with carriers to deliver Windows Phone updates to our customers“, said Greg Sullivan, Senior Product Manager for Windows Phone at Microsoft, talking to Mary-Jo Foley.

According to a recent Windows Phone Blog post, the team said that the firmware and maintenance updates will still be pushed out by Redmond but they will only be available depending on country, phone model and the carrier who requests it.

Microsoft believes that the whole system is unchanged, exactly as we knew it until now. Carriers still can’t skip more than one update and the entire policy, development and delivery process in just the same as one year ago.

There are two possibilities here; unfortunately, either way we go, it’s just bad for Microsoft. First, Microsoft’s intention might have been to change the whole policy and then backtracked due to heavy negative feedback. Second, Redmond really had no change in mind, in which case it’s just another Marketing and/or PR miscommunication. Let’s say the CES Windows Phone announcements could have done without this drama.
