WP7 update may get driving GPS plus copy-paste

The anticipated update to Windows Phone 7 to add copy-and-paste may bring other major feature updates based on a tentative scoop in the past day. The fix relayed to "MS_nerd" would bring true turn-by-turn GPS navigation with spoken directions as well as better integration with Microsoft's Skydrive cloud storage. Multitasking would still remain limited to hubs, he said, but app switching would exist and implies that apps should preserve their states when users jump in and jump out.

The core business audience might also be served through a separate leak that claimed Microsoft would catch up to Apple in how it supplies apps to the enterprise. Companies should have the option of seeding pro apps directly to phones without having to go through the Windows Phone Marketplace, MyMicrosoftLife said. The relevant upgrade would theoretically arrive within the next few months.

Microsoft has previously admitted that WP7 would be considered a 1.0 release but has also said it plans to spend extra effort adding features quickly in the early history of the OS. [via WMPowerUser]
