I'm waiting for my Windows phone 7 update… did you get yours already?

Windows-Phone-Back-From-The-Dead

I really love my Windows Phone 7 smartphone.

OK, small correction: I think the device itself has serious issues with the design and material it's made of (which makes it impossible to grab it easily!), but besides that – I'm very happy with Windows Phone 7, and especially with the user interface which to me is the best interface today (and believe me, I was a BlackBerry, iPhone and Android user for a looooooong time).

Today Microsoft finally started the first OS Update rollout, and I'm excited. I'm excited to see what small improvements exist beside copy/paste which is an obvious one. I'm sure there will be some additional improvements and bug fixes. Hopefully I will get the update sooner than later otherwise I will have to kill someone (did I just write that???).

Here's what Engadget had to say about the expected upgrade:

Today, the company updated their Windows Phone update history to describe the new features that are rolling out in staggered fashion to phones around the globe, and the standout addition is the copy and paste functionality that AT&T's HD7Swill ship with later in the year. You'll also see your apps and games load faster, your marketplace searches refined and your WiFi performance improved. There's also a host of Outlook, messaging, Facebook, audio and camera improvements, though it remains unclear if said video camera now retains your shooting preferences even after you exit the app. Hang tight if you haven't seen your update notification just yet, and be sure to let us know how the new build is treating you down in comments below.

Did I say already that I can't wait?
