Microsoft job posting confirms yearly Windows Phone updates
The mobile OS competition isn't a game of inches, but of leaps and bounds. And when consumers have invested a chunk of their hard-earned cash in a smartphone, they expect it to get better on a regular basis. In the case of Windows Phone 7, it wasn't exactly clear what exactly that 'regular basis' might entail.

But a job posting at the Microsoft Careers page has revealed that the major updates will continue on a yearly schedule: "This Senior Program Manager position will be the CXE [customer experience engineering] Feature PM that drives all development work on the Application Platform for update releases between major yearly releases."

Windows Phone 7 arrived in October of 2010, and then received the minor NoDo update. And at some point in the Fall, we will receive the massive Mango update. So we could have inferred that it was a yearly schedule. But it's nice to have confirmation.

Do you think a yearly update schedule is sufficient? As Microsoft is playing catch-up with iOS and Android, perhaps a semi-annual schedule should be in place. That wouldn't necessarily hasten their development, but it might increase customer satisfaction if they feel like WP7 is progressing more quickly.

Just to clarify, WP7 was released in October 2010. The article says October 2011. Oops.

I think this is incomplete job description. ".....update releases between major yearly releases of OS versions. " OR "update releases between major yearly OS version releases". In IT terms it can also be called hotfixes after OS version is released. Somewhere I had read that Microsoft plans for new version fo OS every year. Here I think it is play of words in job description.

hi everybodyI intended to post you the little bit of note just to say thanks a lot as before for these precious views you have contributed in this case. It is certainly extremely open-handed with you giving publicly precisely what some people would've offered as an electronic book to help with making some bucks on their own, primarily considering that you could have done it in the event you desired. These inspiring ideas additionally acted as the great way to recognize that other individuals have the same keenness much like mine to see very much more pertaining to this issue. Certainly there are many more pleasant situations up front for those who take a look at your blog post.
