The Windows Phone 7 arrived with much fanfare and provided lots of hardware options as well as a sleek interface much like Android. But the bad news was it had quite a few missing features such as hot-swappable SD memory and multi-tasking. But there is still hope.

Waiting for the update

An overexcited Windows Phone 7 developer let slip that Microsoft is planning a big update for the Windows Phone OS. The update includes the copy/cut/paste, free voice-guided Bing navigation, custom ringtone support, a third-party multitasking solution and much more.

The update should land in early January 2011 and will go head-to-head with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and Apple’s iOS 4.3. We can be sure that both Google and Apple will be watching closely as the update gets closer to completion.
