Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore Talks Windows Phone

Peter Bright, Ars Technica:

Joe Belfiore, who runs the Windows Phone design and definition team, was on reddit today to answer questions about Microsoft’s smartphone platform.

The question Belfiore was most excited to answer was whether Windows Phone would get a File Manager app any time soon. It turns out that it will. Belfiore shared a number of screenshots of the app, and said that he hoped to have it released by the end of the month.

File managers aren’t necessarily the first thing that people think of when it comes to smartphones, but with Windows Phone’s support for microSD cards, a tool for moving pictures, music, and files between internal storage and SD storage makes some sense.

A file manager? Guh-ross.
