Good morning to those of you using a Windows Phone 7 device on AT&T Wireless’ network. This morning may be especially good for some of you. Microsoft reports progress in actually delivering the update for the updater and NoDo itself.

Update progress for AT&T Windows Phones

If you take a look at Microsoft’s Windows Phone update status site, you’ll see that the updates for the LQ Quantum and Samsung Focus are listed as “Scheduling”. HTC Surround owners have a longer wait as it is listed as in “Testing” phase. There is some speculation that the Scheduling status for the Quantum and Focus may change to “Delivering update” as soon as sometime today.

Where’s my phone update?

Microsoft also notes that the Windows Phone 7 update for AT&T customers includes support for AT&T’s WISPr protocol that automatically hands off a 3G connection to an AT&T WiFi hotspot when available.
