Many Windows Phone 7 developers have reported receiving an update that enables copy-and-paste functionality earlier this week. Now, WinRumors claims that it has managed to get it’s hands on WP7’s 2011 update schedule.
According to WinRumors, Windows Phone 7 will receive 2 major updates next year, the first of which will bring copy-and-paste functionality [finally], while the second will bring several enhancements to third party apps.
The first update is intended to go live during the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) after Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s opening keynote on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. PST (9:30 p.m. EST).
The second update will be released a month later at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain. It will give WP7 developers access to a new set of include APIs which would allow third party multi-tasking, in-app downloads and better customization for end users.
The leak didn’t tell us whether or not we can expect many other features users have been dying to have such as tethering, memory card hot swapping, and google apps within either of the 2 major updates.
