Windows Phone 7: No Multitasking and no memory card support – Microsoft

Some interesting news to come direct out of Microsoft’s MIX10 event, as the company has revealed that their upcoming slew of Windows Phone 7 Series handsets, will NOT have support for Multitasking or ‘User-replaceable’ memory cards.

As reported from Pocket-Lint, Microsoft has explained that the inclusion of multitasking on Windows Phone 7 handsets, may have a bearing on battery life and performance – so they have decided to remove this, for the time being.

Also surprising, is the removal of MicroSD support, often seen in the current crop of handsets today, as Microsoft insists that they will be forcing manufacturers to make use of internal memory – and have lots of it available to consumers.

We can understand ditching MicroSD, but no multitasking? A very interesting and bold move by Microsoft I think. Let us know your thoughts on this.
