Microsoft reportedly planning Phone 7 update

Written by Fudzilla staff

Playing catch up

Microsoft is rumoured to be readying a major Windows Phone 7 update. While it might seem a bit odd to update a relatively fresh OS, it appears that WP7 simply isn’t doing too well against Android and iOS devices.

The update should include some form of multitasking, as well as copy/paste support. One might say that these crucial features should have been included from the get-go, but then again it’s a clear case of better late than never.

In addition, the update should include Bing turn-by-turn directions and other improvements, as well as custom ringer support.

Despite this WP7 seems destined to face an uphill struggle against Google and Apple offerings. It obviously won’t flop like the Kin, but there is already too much skepticism surrounding Microsoft’s new mobile platform.

actually, no there will be no multi-tasking. The rumor now is that it will just be copy and paste support coming maybe in January, but still slated as Q1 2011. There might be more, but Microsoft has only officially announced copy and paste in that update.
