Microsoft details latest Windows Phone update
Will you be Tangoed?
Microsoft has shed light on its next Windows Phone 'Tango' update, which will see the smartphone OS gain the ability to import and export contacts to and from the Sim card, and attach multiple files to a single message.
The new version of Windows Phone, which is already shipping on the European version of Nokia Lumia 900, is 7.10.8773.98.
While further specifics are as yet unannounced, Microsoft did say the update will add "other quality improvements".
The reveal appeared on Microsoft's WinPho update page, but was later removed for reasons unknown.
No word on when the update will be available for those of us in Blighty, but it will "not be available in all markets or for all phones" apparently. We'll let you know when we hear more. ®
>Import and export contacts to and from the Sim card
This is a joke, right...
I'm sure the 4 genuine Windows Phone owners will be overjoyed with this update when it arrives. Their Lumias will be rocking a featureset from 2009.
import and export contacts to and from a SIM card ?
1991 called ... they want their new features back
I used to have an old winpho phone (cannot remember the make or the model, but it had one of those stylus things which were (for me at least) really convenient ) that could do this.
I think if nokia looks in their basement they might find one of their old radiolinja phones that could already do this.
"The reveal appeared on Microsoft's WinPho update page, but was later removed for reasons unknown." -- They had trouble working out how to do the primitive things other phones do, such as read and write to the SIM card and attach multiple files etc. etc.
In the next update: a web browser capable of reading web pages, an email client capable of sending emails as well as reading them. ad infinitum ...
WTF is Nokia Smoking?
And NOKIA thought this piece of **** is better than the software they were running before?! And they can't even import contacts from a sim with WinPhone 7.5 which by the sounds of it WON'T be upgraded for certain existing phones
