That didn’t take long, did it? Announced at the beginning of May, the Samsung Focus 2 has been available since May 20 and the Windows Phone 7.5 “Tango” update has also been out there for quite some time. However, Focus 2 owners on AT&T are just now getting a notification to install the refresh.
After applying the update you will be prompted to install an additional refresh; when the process is complete the version numbers should read 2126.96.36.199 for the firmware and 2188.8.131.52 for the Radio. The “Tango” update was the one that Microsoft developed to allow Windows Phones with lower specs to operate smoothly. However, it also brought some new features like better notifications and the ability to send ringtones via MMS.
We’re tired of pointing fingers to either Microsoft, Samsung or AT&T. Better late than never, right? We can’t help but wonder whether the timing and the update itself has anything to do with Windows Phone 7.8 being right around the corner. Or is this all just wishful thinking?
