Default Windows Phone 7 three months on: a retrospective

Three months on, there's no doubt that Windows Phone 7 works well on a day-to-day basis. The interface and design aren't just eye-catching razzamatazz. They're well-thought-out, functional, sensible pieces of design, marrying form with function. The platform's beauty is more than skin deep.

It's not all plain sailing, and there are problems. The biggest problem could essentially be phrased as, "the software today is identical to the software three months ago." In other words, Microsoft has yet to ship a single update, a single new feature, a single bug fix. And we still don't know when an update will ship: we know that copy-and-paste and faster application launching are coming, but the company hasn't seen fit to tell us when they will materialize.
