Windows There's been a bunch of Windows Phone 7 reviews out there, and most of them come to the same conclusion: great piece of software for a 1.0 release, but it does miss a few vital features. The Ars Technica review, as usual very in-depth, highlights one particular aspect of the platform that speaks to me: Windows Phone 7 has a sense of humour.

They did say Copy and Paste was coming, but I definitely agree, it wouldn't hurt them to share future plans. Both to calm shaky investors/app developers, and to disarm a lot of reviewers.


I guess in their defence I assume they don't want to over promise - but with that being said they've already talked informally about what will appear in the next release but it is hardly in an accessible format. They might argue that it could put off sales with people waiting for a phone with the updated software on it at time of sale (even though they would get a free software upgrade but people are idiots) but if people don't have the information about a future update then they'll assume it will never come and thus go for an Android or an iPhone. Its a catch 22 hence I tend to err on the side of being open and transparent than playing the sorts of trickery that Apple plays (which is one of the things that pisses me off about Apple).
