    Microsoft plans a major update per year for Windows Phone 7

    Microsoft appears to formalize the development cycle for its Windows Mobile Phone System.

    Unveiled in February 2010 and available since last October, the first Windows phone should be updated during the fall with the deployment of Mango. Microsoft promises with no fewer than 500 new features and some 1500 new programming interfaces are going to be released.

    In the long term, the Redmond company also would include having a regular cycle of development with a major update per year. The information reported by the blog Mobiletechworld, comes from a job published by the Redmond company. The company is looking indeed a responsible management team for Windows Phone Customer Experience Engineering. Thus it is explained that the candidate will "carry out work on upgrading the development platform for major updates annually". Microsoft reiterates that it "will work closely with the Application Platform developing major updates annually".

    If the release schedule is met, one could then imagine that the next major release of Windows Phone will be in the fourth quarter of 2012, that is to say along with the release of Windows 8, confirmed by Dan's Lewin, vice president of strategic development at Microsoft.

    The new software features “tight” integration with Facebook — Microsoft is a minority owner of the social network — Bing, Redmond’s search engine, and Skype, the web-telephony pioneer Microsoft recently purchased for $8.5 billion. Mango will be available on devices beginning this fall, Lees said, adding that the software is already live on not-yet-public handsets built by Nokia.
