Windows Phone 7 is set to get integrated sat-nav services in early 2011, it has been rumoured.
Rumours have emerged which state that Windows Phone 7 will be getting turn-by-turn GPS navigation as part of software update in January 2011.
It is already know that Microsoft will be pushing out an over-the-air update for Windows Phone 7 in January 2011, and that this update is going to be adding copy & paste functionality into Windows Phone 7 handsets. It is now being rumoured, through MS Nerd’s Twitter feed, that this update will also bring integrated satellite navigation to phones.
It has not been confirmed how these services will be integrated into Windows Phone 7 handsets, such as the HTC HD7, but many commentators have come to the conclusion that the likeliest scenario is for them to be rolled into Bing Maps, which is already a key feature of Windows Phone 7.
Windows Phone 7 is already looking attractive, with a range of “superstar” phones from manufacturers such as HTC, Samsung and Dell, but if this rumour is correct, the OS may be set to get even more attractive in future.
