Microsoft has admitted its first major Windows Phone 7 update was a disaster.

Eric Hautala, general manager of Customer Experience Engineering posted an apology of sorts on the Windows Steam Blog.

After covering the successes of the first Windows Phone 7 update in February and details on how an update is rolled out, Hautala goes on to say the company could learn something from the failings.

“I’ve decided to take some extra time to ensure the update process meets our standards, your standards, and the standards of our partners.”

The Windows Phone 7 update bricked Samsung Omnia 7 devices, leaving a trail of disgruntled customers.

Apparently the next update with copy and paste is ‘waiting in the wings’.

“This short pause should in no way impact the timing of future updates, including the one announced recently at Mobile World Congress featuring multitasking, a Twitter feature, and a new HTML 5-friendly version of Internet Explorer Mobile,” explains Hautala.
