Speculation about what's coming next to Windows Phone 7

We know that cut & paste will be coming to Windows Phone 7 in an update later this month.

We've also heard that there will be another update in February. At the moment we don't know what it will include though.

I don't have any inside knowledge about what the February update will include. Nor do I know what or if anything else will be included in the January update.

I do know what I'd like to see though*:
  • More core functionality exposed in the managed SDKs
  • An update to Internet Explorer
  • Release of specific details about support for smaller screens
  • Details about small screen device availability
  • The ability to get the name of a contact as well as their email address or phone number when using the appropriate task
  • A way to integrate with the built in maps app

Realistically though, I'd be happy if any of the above were added.
If I could pick just one I'd take details about small screen device support.

* Obviously I'd like to see more in the long term but these will do for now.
