WCCF Tech recently posted an article indicating that new features will be added to the new Windows Phone 8 update that is due to arrive in the near future. The source was based on an administrator confirming and closing the suggestions with the following message: ““This feature is now available in Windows Phone 8”.
The suggestions in question were based on key features that Windows Mobile 8 OS currently lacks, such as the File Manager, the ability to store apps and attachments on external storage along with improved microSD support, and a simple flick gesture to close the applications inside the Task Manager. Shortly after, the same administrator re-opened the same suggestions in with the following message attached: “This request was mistakenly marked as completed”.
We can draw two conclusions from this interesting shift of resolution marking. The first is that the features that are to be added to the new Windows Phone update were mistakenly leaked by the confirmation previously made, which would be one of the best productivity improvements that the Windows Phone OS has seen so far, bringing a lot of flexibility in file managing, file storage and quick access and app manipulation inside the OS. The second insight might be, unfortunately, that Microsoft has to look into its suggestion workflow management on the website and correct the “bugs” in there as well, since this could indicate a clear sign of miscommunication between departments.
Either way, we hope that the above mentioned features will eventually be implemented and Windows Phone users could finally enjoy a more fluid and productive way in using their Windows Phone devices. Hopefully sooner than later.
