Word is going around that Microsoft may be planning to release a massive update for the Windows Phone 7 operating system in January:
But there's hope yet for those who have purchased Windows Phone 7 handsets, or are thinking about it. Microsoft is rumored to be planning a massive update to the young operating system according to wpcentral.
The news was leaked by overexcited Windows Phone 7 developer Chris Walsh, who couldn't keep quiet about the update's inclusion of copy/cut/paste, free voice-guided Bing navigation, custom ringtone support, a third-party multitasking solution, and more.
The update is rumored to land as early as January, in time to go head to head with Google's Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" and Apple's iOS 4.3.
