Not going to bored you with the details, if you want detail information on the MWC 2011 regarding WP7, you can either go here or here. I am just going to summarize what happened at the MS keynote here:
- Preview of updates
- "NoDo" update coming in March.. yay to copy and pasting and faster game launches
- CDMA versions coming in March (not sure how this impacts Telus/Bell)
- *side note* - LG hates WP7 - no handset at MWC 2011 apparently - maybe they'd do better if their WP7 handsets doesn't suck
- "Mango" preview? Multitasking! Broader integration with SkyDrive - including Office Hub - you can share and view other people's documents on SkyDrive using your WP7 handset, Twitter Integration in People's hub.
- Ooooooo! Demo time!
- Recap of what you and I know already....
- More Demo recap....
- Demo of future stuffs - likely the Mango update
- Multitasking - switch between apps is instantaneous. Press and hold the back button to bring up apps running in the background (ala WebOS) - large swipeable cards - not sure how to kill an app running in the background however. If they really is like WebOS, perfect swiping the card up to terminate?
- IE9 on WP7 - pisses all over Safari on iPhone 4 as IE9 is hardware accelerated
- Extra demo? Kinect and WP7 in perfect harmony. Girl on couch using WP7 to throw balls at a guys' balls.
- 8000 apps, 30k registered developers, 1 million SDKs downloaded since launch. More apps downloaded on day 1 of WP7 than any other day 1 devices (seriously?)
- Nokia dude! Microkia is going to be great!
- Ovi map type capabilities to not only WP7 bing maps, but to all Bing Maps...
