Windows Phone 8 will support removable MicroSD cards

This time last year, I wrote about two mobile phone features that were “must haves” for me in my next phone: the ability to sync directly to Outlook on my desktop and an SD card expansion slot. The lack of these two features in Windows Phone 7 is what led me to buy an Android phone, specifically the HTC Merge from Verizon – it syncs via USB with my desktop Outlook using HTC Sync and has an SD Card slot.

Since then, I’ve been tracking the status of these two features at the Windows Phone Feature Suggestion Box at the Uservoice web site. Today Paul Andrew (Admin, Windows Phone) posted in the “SD Card expansion slot should be standard”  thread that Microsoft had announced in June on the Windows Phone Blog that Windows Phone 8 supports removable MicroSD cards

One down – one to go. 

I’ve heard a rumor that the new Windows Phone 8 from Nokia might support Outlook syncing via a USB cable, but I’ve not been able to confirm this. The thread at Uservoice is still open and taking votes and comments – if you must have it, go vote for it. You can also join the conversation on Facebook in the  Windows Phone sync with Outlook via USB group.
