It is finally here. Microsoft has started their official rollout of the ‘NoDo’ update, which brings along with it stability improvements and copy/paste functionality. What didn’t go unnoticed by me is the fix for the Exchange 2003 Global Address Lookup (GAL) problem I noted in my original WP7 post. Here is the official word from Microsoft regarding the specific fix:
Outlook improvements. We’ve improved the experience of viewing iPhone photo attachments you receive from a non-Exchange-based email account (such as a Google Mail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! Mail account), using the Global Address List (GAL) when connecting to Exchange Server 2003 using Exchange ActiveSync, and working with email display names that contain brackets (for example, “David Alexander [Contoso]”).

The next big milestone, of course, for Windows Phone7 is the ‘Mango’ update due at the end of the year. I really hope Microsoft gets it out on time, as I’m looking forward to the platform being enhanced with IE9 and the integration of Twitter into the People Hub.
