Microsoft issues Windows Phone 7 feedback survey

Microsoft is surveying its early Windows Phone 7 adopters.

The software giant has issued a feedback survey to allow owners the chance to give Microsoft direct valuable feedback. The survey asks owners to rank features inside Windows Phone 7 from not influential to very influential. Microsoft has also included an open-ended question – “What, if anything, would you change about your Windows Phone 7?”

The survey has pleased a number of vocal members at the XDA-Developers forum. Users of the forum have been posting their suggestions publicly. “Give us an official support page and a contact number for issues” wrote one, “more reliable push notifications” wrote another.

Microsoft is on the brink of shipping a Windows Phone 7 update. The company has frustrated a number of users with the lack of updates and clear roadmaps for bug fixes and feature enhancements. The software maker currently has over 6,500 applications and over 20,000 registered Windows Phone developers. Microsoft is promising performance enhancements for its first Windows Phone 7 update, due in February. The update, codenamed “NoDo”, will improve application start-up and resume times and introduce the important copy and paste feature. Microsoft is also expected to detail a second bigger update in February at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, Spain. Microsoft’s second update will introduce enhanced developer controls for applications and updated Silverlight components.

    Has Microsoft said that the NoDo update will be released in February, or is it your speculation? Thanks
