It seems Microsoft is planning an upgrade to its popular Windows phone 7 after users were left scratching their heads when the firm left cut and paste off its list of functions. A blog post by a Microsoft director revealed that this addition will be made in the next few weeks with many industry experts pencilling in an upgrade date of early 2011.
Microsoft has responded to users concerns by saying “Critics have commented on the lack of specific features like copy & paste and lack of 100s of thousands of new applications,” Shah posted on his blog. “And while both are true, copy & paste will be available as an update in a matter of weeks and as for applications, it’s just a matter of time.”
Shah played down the criticisms and concerns that Microsoft is a struggling brand. He said “Microsoft ends up getting a lot of slack for not being quick enough to market, and while that’s fair criticism in certain situations, that doesn’t make it a dying brand”.
He was also very quick to point out the market prominence his brand enjoys by saying products like internet explorer, Bing, XBOX Kinect and Windows 7 give them strength and prominence as brand – we’d have to agree with him there.
Do you think Microsoft should have included cut and paste from launch?
