"The list of features missing in Windows Phone 7 -- no multitasking of third-party applications, no copy-and-paste, no native Twitter client -- has dominated forums and early reviews of reference hardware phones put in the hands of 1,000 developers last week."
Matt Hamblen from Computerworld has written a article highlighting some of the rampant discussions about the features Windows Phone 7 "has" and those it "has not". Matt has included some representative comments from potential buyers and analysts that touch on the lack of copy-and-paste functionality, the limited multitasking capability, and the omission of Twitter support, among other issues. It seems be a divided world out there, with some people thinking the omissions are going to be fatal, and others thinking they are no big deal as long as they are included in a future release. What do you think? Are these omissions outweighed by what else Microsoft has included?
