Multitasking May Not Hit Windows phone 7 Until 2012



While Microsoft may be multi-tasking to deliver Windows Phone 7 updates, bring CDMA Windows Phone 7 support, and ink a partnership with Nokia, an update to the platform, codenamed Mango, that is scheduled to bring a slew of features to the new mobile platform may not make it in 2011 and could slip to 2012. SlashGear is reporting that Mango’s arrival “is a near impossibility” in 2011.

The update is said to be a major OS revision and is a significant OS update, which could bring the version number up. What Mango will be released as is unknown–whether it’s Windows Phone 7.x or Windows Phone 8 is unclear–but the update will bring with it support for HTML5, multitasking, IE9 webpage rendering, and potentially Silverlight support with gestures.

    The source is just Paul Thurrott, but e.g. Mary Jo Foley disagrees.

    Honestly, I don’t think it will take a whole year to bring a single update to the market (NoDo has been finalized in late December), with a few OEMs already waiting for Mango to join Windows Phone.
    And besides, MS could just split the new features in two different updates, if they end up having troubles with, say, multitasking implementation.

    Please stop quoting Paul Thurrott, the guy has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. He is starting all of these bogus rumors.
