Windows Phone 7 update coming January says preview page URL

The impending Windows Phone 7 software update still hasn't been officially dated by Microsoft, but it seems their web team aren't quite so cautious. BGR spotted that, while Steve Ballmer was careful not to confirm a ship date during the Microsoft CES 2011 keynote yesterday, the preview page itself mentions "January update" in the URL.

That would certainly fit in with rumors earlier in the week about the incoming upgrade, which will – among other things – add copy/paste functionality to the smartphone and boost the startup speed for apps and games. It will also improve search functionality in the Marketplace.
