Microsoft is currently rolling out the NoDo update to selected Windows Phone 7 devices, bringing support for faster app launching, copy and paste, and more. Windows Phone 7 is set up so that Microsoft can push updates centrally without waiting for handset makers to issue their own updates. But that doesn’t mean device makers can’t issue their own software updates, and HTC is apparently the first company to do just that.

The::unwired has posted a screenshot showing the new HTC update for Windows utility which customers can use to update the software on their phones.

It’s not clear at the moment if the HTC utility just applies the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update or if HTC has baked any of its own changes into the software update.
