What to expect in Windows Phone 7 January Updates!

Microsoft has announced on their official Windows Phone 7 site the list of features and updates which it plans to deliver this month, to Windows Phone 7 operating system.

According to Microsoft;

One question we hear often is: What’s next for Windows Phone? We’re obsessive about listening closely to our customers and improving our phone software. So over the next few months, look for updates that add some new features you’ve asked for and also tune up your phone’s performance.

Here’s a peek at some of what’s ahead in 2011:

Copy and paste
Copy and paste is a handy way to quickly send someone’s latest Facebook update, turn-by-turn directions from Maps, or a must-see link from Internet Explorer Mobile. Once you’ve copied something, you can paste it again and again.

Using copy and paste is easy and intuitive. In many cases you just tap a word, slide your finger to highlight any additional text, then tap the Copy icon. To insert this text in a message or app, just tap the spot where it should go, then tap the Paste icon.

Faster apps and games
Nobody likes to wait. That’s why we’ve whittled down the time it takes for apps and games to start up and resume. It’s all part of our focus on getting you to the things you love, easier and faster.

Better Marketplace search
We’ve streamlined Marketplace search to make it easier to find specific apps, games, or music. Press the Search button in the apps or games section of Marketplace and you’ll see only apps or games in the results.
Press Search in the music section of Marketplace to search just the music catalog.

Getting phone updates
Q) How will you know when an update is available?

Ans) Easy. Your phone is designed to automatically tell you via a pop-up message (unless you’ve turned this option off).

On Start, flick left to the App list and tap Settings . Then tap Phone update.

If an update is available, and you want to learn more and install it on your phone, connect your phone to your computer using the USB cable that came with your phone.

On your Windows computer, run the Zune software if it doesn’t start automatically, and then, in the Zune software, select Settings > Phone > Update.

Note: If your computer doesn’t have the Zune software installed, you’ll be prompted to download and install it before you can update your phone. The Zune software will provide an estimate of the time required for the update to complete.

If you aren’t prompted to download the Zune software, you can install it from the Download Zune software page.
