Have your say in Windows Phone's future

Have your say in Windows Phone's futureWindows Phone Mango is big in the news rage right now, but of course the mobile wheels never stop turning, and soon we'll be talking about Windows Phone Apollo – the next spin of the Microsoft mobile OS wheel.

And Microsoft really does want us talking about it, as it's planning on making everyday user suggestions a big part of the Apollo upcoming feature list from an early stage.

So how does it plan to achieve that? Well, it's done the obvious thing and asked. It's set up a Feature Suggestions page where users can suggest ideas for what they want to see in Windows Phone Apollo, and vote on the ideas suggested by others.

Sign up to take part and you'll get 10 votes to play with, including one for your own idea of course – if you have one.

So far there are several ideas that have votes well into the thousands. Leading the way at the time of writing is the desire for Arabic language support, with Persian and Thai also figuring highly. Sticking with the geographic theme, enabling the full array of Bing features for non-US users also features highly, as does introducing the ability to back up.

Fancy having a say in Windows Phone's future? Then head over and cast a few votes, or suggest something you'd like to see. Be warned, though: apart from the possibility of seeing your genius idea find it's way into the finished OS, there's nothing else in it for you.

Thank gawd for google hay matt :D

still if microsoft listen to what their customers ask for and follow through they may turn windows phone into a shexy opportunity...

Yeah, true, IF Microsoft listen to what customers want...which isn't going to happen. I mean, who the hell decided WP7 should launch with no keyboard when web browsing one way around, no C&P and no multi-tasking what-so-ever.
