Microsoft is reportedly readying not one, but two updates that will be available for Windows Phone 7 handsets early next year.
The first one will bring copy & paste, as already reported, and it should be rolled-out in January.
The second update – which could be detailed at MWC 2011 – might bring even more interesting features to Windows Phone 7. According to Mobility Digest and the registry entries seen below, WP7 supports VoIP calling and Visual Voicemail, but they’re not enabled yet.
VoIP calling is one of the new features that Android 2.3 Gingerbread brings, so it kind of makes sense for Microsoft to want it in Windows Phone 7, too.
Sure enough, there’s no official confirmation that VoIP calling and Visual Voicemail are coming to WP7 handsets early next year, but let’s hope it will happen.
