Paul Thurrott teases improved Windows Phone update delivery in the future

imageThe Windows Phone update story has never been as good as promised, primarily due to carrier delays, but on the GFQ podcast Microsoft insider Paul Thurrott teased that this may not be an issue in the future.

When asked if the Nokia Lumia 520 will be getting GDR3, he said “there’s going to be some good news there” and when pressed as to the solution such as custom ROMs if the carrier does not deliver he replied “we don’t have as big of a thing around those lines. But that’s not going to be an issue going forward. So, we’ll talk about that next week. But that won’t be a problem.”

Hopefully he is teasing a new policy by Microsoft that will remove carriers as the middle men, or deliver important updates as hotfixes vs firmware updates.
