At Mobile World Congress today in Barcelona, Microsoft announced some of its plans to update Windows Phone 7 in 2011. Over the course of the year, the company has plans to roll out a number of updates to the operating system, offering several new features including:
Copy and paste functionality via first major update, coming in the next month
Twitter integration directly into the People Hub in 2011
Support for Office documents in the cloud in 2011
Dramatically enhanced Web browser experience based on IE9 in 2011
A new wave of multitasking applications in 2011
“We’re in the race – it’s not a sprint but we are certainly gaining momentum and we’re in it for the long run,” said Achim Berg, a corporate vice president in Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business and Marketing Group. “We know we have tough competition, and this is a completely new product. Our design is different, our platform is different, our customer experience is different, and our long-term strategy for earning widespread adoption is different.”
