According to ChevronWP7 developer Chris Walshie Microsoft is updating Windows Phone 7.The update reportedly brings copy/paste functionality, multi-tasking support, and several Bing improvements such as turn-by-turn directions. Rumors suggest users will also be able to add custom ringtones.
Chris Walsh (@ChrisWalshie) describes the WP7 update as “massive,” and says that “MS took 3 months to do what Apple did in 3 years.” He goes on to say that Microsoft “could have called it Windows Phone 8.” This is music to our ears.
Earlier this year following the October launch of the Windows Phone 7 system, Microsoft suggested that the first update for the well received mobile OS would need to be completed with the assistance of a PC rather than the standard over-the-air system hinting towards a hefty overhaul.
Microsoft has yet to confirm a feature list or launch date for the upcoming Windows Phone 7 update, but it is rumored to be on its way as early as January.
