April 8, 2011 2 comments

This morning, I woke up with a long awaited windows phone 7 update: March 2011 Windows Phone Update or if you prefer “The Copy & Paste Update”.

March 2011 WP7 Update Be patient as thye update takes a while to install but it’s well worth it.

Once the update was installed I found that my phone was slightly faster. Coincidence? I don’t know.

At first, I wasn’t sure on how to use the copy & paste features, so I had to guess. Later on, I found the

explanation on the windows phone blog.

February 9, 2011 Leave a comment

Is a Window’s Phone Update coming our way? Well at least while waiting for the update to be broadcasted to our phones we can prep our code!

Yup. Microsoft has released a new WP7 Developper tool update fro January 2011 (publish in early febuary).

You can download it here: Download

I did not have the time to experience it much but here aqre the things that are improved:

  • Copy and Paste
  • Capability Detection Tool
  • Windows Phone Connect Tool
  • Updated Bing Maps Silverlight Control

And the good news is the “Copy and Paste”! Apparently most of the applications will not need to be updated to support. Whew! thanks MSFT. I wouldn’t like to recompile and resubmit all my apps

to the Market place.

Well now we just have to wait for the official broadcast of the update to the physical devices!

Hurry! Come On! Do It!

 P.S. : If you have Windows XP on your machine forget this you’re too far behind.
