Microsoft has made a slew of very juicy announcements about the future of WP7 in a press release at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. One of the new additions as we were expecting to the WP7 will be the introduction of the copy & paste feature. According to Microsoft it should appear in the next major release of the Windows Phone 7. Probably in March that is not that far. Additionally there will be introduction of multi-tasking support for the third party applications in the later part of the year. Although there are no technical details about the nature of this multi-tasking support. Another feature that is coming to the WP7 this year is the Twitter integration in People Hub. Also the support for the SkyDrive syncing of Office documents in WP7 will be introduced. And before we forget the big news is that Internet Explorer 9 is coming to the WP7 in the second half of this year! And IE 9 will come with full support for the hardware acceleration and many other enhancements from the PC version of the IE 9.
Finally, Microsoft also showed a technology demo of the Kinect use with the WP7 platform. Although there are not any exact details so far about the nature of this integration of Kinect with WP7. This technology preview video is embedded below:
