Looks like it's out with the old
and in with the new
for Windows Phone developer handsets, with Microsoft announcing it has no intention to provide NoDo (or any future updates) to beta devices such as the Samsung Taylor. Even though test units were given free to many devs, a few poor saps have reported buying them from third-parties. Without eulogizing, we'd like to remind everyone that these phones were born from the greatness of the i8910
only to give coders early access to the platform. Considering what's coming in Windows Phone Next
, perhaps it's time to shed that prototype hardware and move boldly forward. That commemorative Taylor will look mighty fine in a display case, don't you think?
