Starting today, some of you might see something new on your Windows Phone: A message announcing that a software update is available. Woo hoo!

Now, before you get too excited, let me explain: This isnít the update youíve probably been reading about or perhaps waiting for, the one with copy and paste (but thatís coming soon).
