Microsoft outlines WP7 “NoDo” schedule… we’re in the “Scheduling” phase

Some Canadian Windows Phone 7 users have received their “NoDo” upgrade, while others are still waiting. The reason Microsoft pointed out in a blog post was because they first rolled out “the new update only to “open market” Windows Phones around the world. If you own one of these phones, you probably already know it: these are unbranded devices that aren’t customized for a specific mobile operator.”

So where do the rest of us stand? Well, a chart has been created that sheds a bit of light on this upgrade and future upgrades. “Where’s my phone update?” chart was created to understand if/when an WP7 upgrade will be pushed through. There are 3 stages: Testing, Scheduling, Delivering Update. All pretty self explanatory but the key is the number of days between each phase. “Testing” is from the operator standpoint and there is no fixed date. Scheduling is when the testing is complete and Microsoft a time to deliver the update (usually lasts up to 10 days). Finally, the Delivering update phase. Microsoft explains that “typically delivered to customers in batches, it might take several weeks before you receive notice that an update is available for you.”

As you can tell from the chart above us Canadians Bell, Rogers, SaskTel and TELUS are all in the “Scheduling” phase and copy and paste could take up to 10 days to get delivered then “several weeks” to actually get here.
