Microsoft pulling update for Samsung phones? It hasn't happened yet...
Over at WinRumors, they're reporting that Microsoft has pulled the update for Samsung Windows Phones due to those ongoing technical issues:
They've also supposedly identified the problem and are working on a fix, noting it is only affecting a "small number" of devices. (Ahem, ok)
What's curious though is as of now, it does not look like Microsoft has successfully pulled the update as our own Rich Edmonds just went through the flashing process minutes ago with his Omnia 7 in the UK. Of course it failed to finish the update, so no news there, but if Microsoft is pulling this for Samsung, they evidently need to take hours to do so. Perhaps this is a "rolling recall", which seems kind of a bad idea from our viewpoint right about now.
Thanks, Adrian W., for the heads up
