Updated rumored to be coming in January
Microsoft is allegedly preparing a "massive" update for Windows Phone 7 handsets, according to ChevronWP7 developer Chris Walshie. 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.
"MS took 3 months to do what Apple did in 3 years," Walshie posted on Twitter. "Let's just say, they could have called it Windows Phone 8."
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. [via WPCentral]
