Finally! A Windows Phone update -- well, actually a series of them


A final follow-up on my piece here. There I was, minding my own business earlier this evening when, as I was peeking at my phone, I noticed an update message! A total of 5 (yeah, 5!) updates were pushed to my Samsung Focus S phone, including one Samsung update and four OS updates. My phone is now at version 7.10.8773.98. I'm quite happy to see that at&t finally decided to allow these updates to make it to devices (besides the ones that were released with them, that is). No more disappearing keyboard bug will make Marc a happy camper!
