Microsoft job posting confirms yearly Windows Phone updates

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.
