Microsoft back tracks on User Voice feature suggestions for Windows Phone 7.8

A couple days ago Microsoft took to the User Voice forums to ask what features people would like to see in the Windows Phone 7.8 update. The response was huge as users flocked to tell Microsoft what WP8 features they want in their current phones. However, it turns out all was not as it seemed.

Today¬†Microsoft is doing a little back tracking. They are claiming that the wording on their previous post was no accurate. They were looking to see suggestions rather than take requests. In other words: they just wanted to see what you want, but there is no intention to bring any of it to 7.8. This is a little¬†disappointing, but if you look at a calendar it’s good that Microsoft isn’t still taking feature requests.

    Micorsoft doing what they are famous for, screwing over the customers. I don’t see how anybody from the Apple platform would want to jump on Windows Phone. Their best bet would be to go with Android. That way they don’t have to set themselves up for disappointment.

    Windowsphone is better than iOS on the parts that counts for me, but it is inferior to android (custimazation, variety and how good it is to use it). iOS powered items offers more apps and extra equippment (speakes, cases and such). I just want to have smartphone wich is great for media and that it has a great homescreen, so iOS is not an option.

    iPad and iPhone looks just the same. surface and nokia lumia 920 looks different. Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, looks a tad similar.

    Windows is the future in smartphones and tablets because of their patents and experience in software. Android is going to vanish because of Apple’s idiotic patents that are unreasonable and unfair. We might aswell get used to choosing between WP and iOS in a few years (or weeks if Apple get their way in court (as they usually do)).
