Microsoft resumes WP7 update for 'bricked' Samsung handsets

After much brouhaha and rigmarole, Microsoft appears to be back on track with its inaugural Windows Phone 7 software update. An update that wasn't actually supposed to do anything but prepare that first wave of WP7 devices for their first real update but, ironically, left about 10 percent of WP7 owners with issues including some precision-built Samsung paperweights. Last night Microsoft issued an update on the matter saying that the February update for Samsung handsets has been fixed, resuming its rolling release schedule. Great, with this hopefully behind us, maybe we can now focus on the first real update scheduled for "early March" that will finally check off the platform's infamous lack of copy 'n paste on the road to multitasking, Twitter integration, and a vastly improved IE9 browser later in the year.
