    Me personally I want Real turn by turn navigation. Plain and simple get it done. Buy a company if you have to or integrate ovi maps right in. Also one other thing that I think is now a weakness for wp7 is the notification system. Its great but one thing I would like to see is the voice command moved to the search button when you hold it down and replace the windows button hold function with a Notification menu that has all your Notifications that you havent taken care of. Kinda how the App switching menu comes up except for your notifications. Simple to use and can be accessible anywhere on your phone unlike the current model. Currently if you dont look at it right away your screwed. Lets say for example your reading an article on the web, in an app, or happen to be playing a game and want to finish something up real quick. The problem now is if you don't do that in the 5 seconds or so that the notification is up you have to back out to the Start menu and then click on the live tile or worse go to the app list. Something as simple as holding down the windows icon to bring up that would be awesome. What does everyone else want to see and what do you think of my idea.

    Custom SMS and email tones
    More color choices for tiles (a color slider would be fantastic)
    Perhaps background images for the start screen? I think a Black and white photo with silver tiles would look excellent.
    Support for dual core processors (not for UI necessarily, but for more intense apps like Infinity Blade, etc.)

    • More IM services (or at least give the user the option to add by his will)
    • Allow third-party apps access the lock screen (their notifications)
    • Group/folder option for home screen (only when needed of course)
    • SkyDrive app

    I think Skype is a given in a future update. I do agree custom background on start screen and custom alert tones would be reallly cool as well. Doubt your going to see alot of Google integration. Look how the youtube thing has gone down. Not likely that google will allow certain things for Google chat or anything like it. I would like to see all carriers allow Visual Voicemail. Voice to text would be cool to have across the whole OS.

    Um there is a Netflix app O_O


    I'd like to see a Hulu app and more accent colors. Not really worried about custom sounds

    Sorry - I confused it with the lack of Netflix app on Amazon's App Store since I just pre-ordered a Kindle Fire.

    - attach video to an MMS
    - Color wheel or slider for custom tile colors
    - more customization options (sounds, backgrounds etc.)
    - would love to see the ability to use a percentage value on the battery and not buried in the system settings.

    I want it to make my bed, cook my dinner, love me.........not trying to sound harsh but there are some here looking for the Utopian phone and I gotta say, it doesn't exist. Sometimes I read comments on this forum and there are some that would still complain if it made the bed et al.

    I have to say I was happy with my Focus before Mango because it is intuitive to use and gets me to what I need to do quickly. As an added bonus I can do work related stuff (Office and SharePoint) (unlike Droid and iPhone) without lugging my laptop around. I am really happy with it now with the improvements Mango added.

    Also, I'd like to see the ability to change tile sizes or even make tile "folders" for less clutter.

    - Custom alerts (NOT ringtones; they're different)
    - ZuneHD UI. I like the Mango update in the music player, but the original used on ZuneHD is still better. I miss it.
    - More colors, or at least more options.
    - A Microsoft-made remote desktop app that I don't have to pay $6 for just to get really limited functionality.
    - 3rd party app access to the splash screen for updates.
    - Ability to combine tiles to remove some clutter. I mean, I could put "Me", "People" and "Facebook" all into one tile, that would then take me to a separate tile page to choose between them. I'd like that very much, since I'm kind of OCD about my home screen. It'd also give me a chance to bundle up the apps I rarely use under one tile, so I don't have to scroll through the huge list just to get them.
