On the Windows team blog Microsoft has confirmed that the Samsung Omnia 7 update is being rolled out, which will take some handsets all the way from 7008 to 7392, and others from NoDo to 7392.
The roll-out will happen in stages, and Microsoft notes that if the update does not arrive today Omnia 7 owners should check again next week. Besides unbranded devices, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, and SFR subscribers are also targeted.
Unfortunately the update for the Samsung Focus is not ready yet, and Microsoft did not give a time scale for its arrival.
Interestingly the blog posts also notes that Omnia owners will not necessarily need to install the Samsung driver update, and that only users who are experiencing the 801812C1 error need to bother.
Given the multiple issues Microsoft appears to be having with Samsung handsets I have increasingly more sympathy for the Windows Phone 7 team in dealing with what is clearly a very troublesome OEM.
