Hooray–Dell Venue Pro NoDo and Firmware updates being pushed separately


Dell support has tweeted that the NoDo update currently being pushed out will just be containing the Microsoft OS updates, without any firmware update.  They are promising an actual firmware fix at some future date.

While for Dell Venue Pro users this may seem like a bad thing, it does fulfil Microsoft’s promise of separating the OS from the firmware, and Microsoft’s pace of updates from Dell’s, which can only be a good thing.

In theory OS-only updates have less ability to brick a device, and should therefore require less or even no carrier testing, and free Microsoft from delays related to the carrier yoke, and that would be great news for all.
