Default MS Marketing info misleading - or are their employees just lucky?

Wishful thinking for for the day:

This is an excerpt from a MAY 2011 document on Technet regarding a Case Study (at MS) for deployment of WP7 to employees. The document is discussed in more detail – around the context of WP7 for enterprise, in an editorial HERE.

This section is how MS marketing describe the "Update Process" for their staff (56,000+) with WP7:

"Updates to Windows Phone Decrease Potential Downtime
Windows Phone users report effortless device updates, thanks to the addition of the Zune® software client to Microsoft personal-computer images late last year. The update of the Windows Phone devices to the most-current releases has been without issue.

Users receive published updates by connecting their phones to the corporate network after they receive notification on their phones about available updates. MSIT tracks the number of downloaded updates to employees’ phones. Currently, acceptance is at approximately 50 percent.

The update process also includes a backup of a phone’s image, which results in successful restoration of client data and a phone’s operating system. Therefore, when things go wrong, getting a user back up and running occurs within minutes rather than hours or days."
WOW - so is that carrier bypass for updates AND no issues? Damn!
