Windows So, Mobile World Congress is going on over in the beautiful city of Barcelona, and there, Steve Ballmer held a little speech about Windows Phone 7's past, present, and future. Especially the future interests us, as a lot's been planned for this year: copy/paste, hardware-accelerated mobile Internet Explorer 9, and, yes, multitasking!

At least one more year to ridicule MS for their antiquated OS!

I mean, really? C&P? Multitasking? Erm, exciting...

Sorry, I know my post sounds a little trollish, so far. They have a long way to go just to catch up to the current status quo. Word is that Nokia's first WP7 gear will arrive in early 2012. With the rapid development speed of Android last year, I can only imagine where they will be one year from now. Not saying MS are game over, but being different (WP7 UI = Tiles galore, minimalism) doesn't equal success. Did anybody actually miss MS in the next generation smartphone wars? I haven't.
