Mobile World Congress is happening at the moment, and it’s really exciting in terms of what’s being announced for WP7, including:
- IE9 for WP7, with native hardware acceleration – watch the WP7 totally outperform the iPhone; granted at Microsoft’s own test, but still…
- Full Multitasking (including fast app switching and third-party music multitasking – hello Pandora!)
- Twitter support for the People Hub
But don’t hold your breath – I fully expected the first WP7 update for Copy Paste to land at the end of 2010…then January…then February…and finally now we have a concrete “date range” of the first two weeks of March…so all the awesome videos you just watched won’t probably mean anything to real consumers until much later this year. Still, it’s a good time to be a WP7 owner!
