We heard rumors last week that today was the day AT&T was to begin distribution of the Windows Phone 7 update, affectionately known as Nodo. The morning came and went with no signs of the rumor holding true but just a few little while ago, AT&T unleashed Nodo. We've received a number of tips from Focus owners confirming this plus the update popped up when we connected our Focus to Zune.
Nodo is now available for the Samsung Focus and LG Quantum. The HTC Surround will have to wait until mid-May due to software issues. Along with the standard features, the AT&T Nodo will also include "unique features" such as a WISPr feature that automatically taps into AT&T's hotspots and support for AT&T's Address Book.
According to the update screen, the entire process will take about twenty minutes, first installing the February 2011 update and then the March 2011 update. We're about to hit the update button and begin the process and if you've already updated your Focus or Quantum, feel free to share how your thoughts on how everything went and if the wait was worth it.
Thanks to everyone who sent in this tip!
