Microsoft asks you to suggest Windows Phone 7.8 features
posted by Michael H. / Sep 09, 2012, 11:45 AM
As is Windows Phone 7.8 is known to have the new start screen, and is expected to have some camera improvements, and maybe a couple other small improvements. But, in a new forum post, Microsoft has asked users to post "specifically what features you would like to see on 7.8 and vote individually for the one that you want most."
The original post has suggestions to add "screenshots, Internet Explorer 10, new dictation, over-the-air updates, new languages, Office 2013, Skype VoIP and datasmart" to Windows Phone 7.8, and as of this writing, the thread had received almost 54,000 votes. There are also suggestions to add more languages, SMS backup, transferring files via Bluetooth, and of course, OTA updates.
If you want to get in your suggestions and vote on features, just head to the source.

Must be able to intall Android OS because WP7.8 can't be upgrade to WP8. I has very bad experience with WP6.5 couldn't be upgrade to WP7, now I have Galaxy S3 is the smoothest phone ever. No more WP in my life.

Are you kidding me or are you a retard ? there is a problem with your complaint so your arguement is invalid, let me point something out to you are mad cause you can not upgrade window mobile 6.5 to window phone 7 two different platforms. There is one windows mobile 6.5 device that i know of that can be rom flashed to have windows phone 7 on it and that is the HTC HD2.

nope, they haven't. I am running 7.10.8773.98, and arabic is not there...the only way to get arabic is through native keyboard V2 (check out xda), but you have to "introp unlock" you phone first. still though you won't have the full arabic support, for example in SMS typing

I suggested these: If anyone wants more let me know. 1. Option to keep WiFi alive when in stand-by mode. 2. Screen rotation lock 3. Screenshot 4. Skype integration 5. Bluetooth file transfer 6. Windows Phone 8 IE 7. Black and white accent colors 8. Option to set different colors to each single tile 9. Remote desktop client 10. VPN support 11. Farsi language support (Which I think is coming) 12. Add GIFT CARD option for purchasing from Marketplace like iTunes/Play Store gift cards. 13. Show battery percentage at the top. 14. Differentiate system volume and ringer volume. 15. Start button as notification LED. 16. Close apps/games through Multitask screen. 17. Save camera settings upon exit. 18. Picture password (Like the one in Windows 8) and/or Face unlock. 19. Full Windows phone 8-like backup + Games data backup (So that after hard resetting you don't need to replay the game) 20. Data sense app

The entire AV industry evolved and revolved around M$ windows. Rebooting phone once a day it's good for eveyrthing ... I have seen firefox crash on windows desktop. Who do i blame? M$ or Firefox? Same applies on any OS :)
