Microsoft has been talking about Windows Phone 7 updates since long before WinP7 was even released. WP7 users should be happy to note that many of the upcoming features Microsoft has been discussing could be coming as soon as January in a major update.
According to WP7 developer Chris Walsh, who claims to have inside knowledge of the update, Microsoft's upcoming software bump will be "massive." Expected features include copy/paste, free voice-guided Bing navigation, custom ringtone support, a third-party multitasking solution and more.
Needless to say, all of this functionality is sorely missed in Windows Phone 7 as it stands today.
