Updated: added link / added SkyDrive feature info

Microsoft today lifted the veil on new features coming later in 2011. Steve Ballmer, making a keynote address at MWC in Barcelona, also revealed that Windows Phone will receive several key new features later this year. First is a limited kind of multi-tasking much like Apple added to iOS, which will allow apps to play sound in the background and allow fast switching, where apps resume exactly where you left off. Also coming this year is an updated browser with the Internet Explorer 9 rendering engine, hardware graphics acceleration, and an improved interface. Finally, Twitter will be integrated into the OS's "People Hub", in the same way the People Hub currently supports Facebook. The Office Hub will also gain access to documents on SkyDrive in addition to SharePoint. All of these features will come by the end of 2011, although a more precise release schedule was not announced.
