Rumors from Chris Walshie about the WP7 update early 2011

So do you hear that? It sounds like christmas after new years eve. It seems to be a big update time soon for the Windows Phone 7. Regarding to many rumors from people like Chris Walshie there will be a of course an update of the WP7 but what is mmore interesting is the size and the features in that update (picture left).

So it is said that the following features will be inlcuded in the update

* Bing turn-by-turn directions, improvements
* Custom ringer support
* Copy/Paste
* Multi-tasking (of some form)

This sounds pretty impressive. Especially the turn-by-turn feature is really some improvement. If you don’t know what this means then have a look at bings turn-by-turn feature made by “Pocket Video Now”. I am pretty exited about that even if i am aware that these are just rumors but some of the will definetely be included (sooner or later… but not 3-Apple-Years-Later).

If that is not enough, Paul Thurrott made a list of things that  he thinks should be added or improved. So what do you think about that?
