What You Get with NoDo
Expected in March 2011, NoDo will bring to Windows Phone 7 the much-anticipated support for copy and paste. Although dropped from the initial release, Microsoft acknowledged countless requests for its instatement on the launch day – at this time the only confirmed functional improvement to the platform’s first update would be copy and paste.
In addition, NoDo adds some performance improvements, apparently enabling fast launch of various apps and games, as well as CDMA support, which should lead to some of the current Windows Phone 7 handsets being sold on the Sprint and Verizon networks in North America.
Finally, NoDo is also expected to deliver an updated Windows Phone Marketplace Hub experience, improving the search function to allow users to search for apps of a specific kind. As things stand, a search will return songs, albums, artists and apps and games, which can make for an overwhelming search experience.
So with all of these improvements, what’s left for Mango?
