DISCLAIMER: I am not posting this to talk about what is wrong or right with WP8. I'm simply just asking if anyone has heard of MSFT stating that they realize that they have to add a few more features in order to be more enticing to outsiders. I know that MSFT has said they are coming with an update as well, but for some reason I am sensing a lack of transparency in MSFT doings. I know they want to keep certain things on the hush, but throw us fans a bone sometimes. We were in the dark about WP8 for a long time and to an extent, we still are.
AGAIN, I don't want to talk about whats wrong or right about WP8. Just if MSFT has acknowledge some of these things. I don't do twitter, so I don't keep up with them there although I am tempted.

My experience: you are not missing much by not being on Twitter. Unless you keep your eyes glued to the stream, most tweets pass you by unread. Sure, you can search, etc., but then you might as well keep tabs on a blog, where more information is available.

MS has consistently said that they plan to add more functionality and ability to WP.
Even if it was the most robust OS in the world, they're still going to try to improve it. Same with Google and Apple with their operating systems. It's never done. There's always work to do.

Well they did acknowledge the lack of a notification center and are working on it. They also acknowledged the WiFi problem and have delivered a fix...
They have delivered new features within one month of the release of the phones.
Thread is kind of silly, IMO. No company is that transparent regarding their future roadmap.

Attention competitors!!!! My company is going to try and implement this, this, and that, in order to compete with you. Please do not use this knowledge to come up with something even more kick a$s than what we are saying we want to do here. Thank you.

When I speak of transparency, I don't mean for them to give away all what they plan to do. Just an indication of things to come. Android tells their future business all the time, doesn't mean they care much. I guess when you are on top of the market though you don't care as much. I'm just wanting to find out if these same folks that are the faces of MS voice anything even slightly revealing.

We won't get any indication of features Microsoft is currently working on, at least not until their release is imminent.
However, I agree that Microsoft needs to do a better job of reassuring us that they are listening to users and taking feedback seriously. Although Microsoft is doing exactly that, I understand those who are sceptical. Many will have a hard time grasping what Microsoft has been working on these last 12 months, given that WP8 doesn't seem like such a big step beyond what we already had in WP7, at least not on the surface. Microsoft does need to do a better job communicating.

So long as they admit behind closed doors and update it to all their WP 8 devices for at least two years (or two major cycles), I am fine with no transparency. Keep as hush-hush as you want so long as the proof in in the OS support.Thesaurus: (noun)- An ancient reptile with an excellent vocabulary.
