Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore Tweets Windows Phone Features in iOS 5


One of the features iOS 5 will bring to Apple iPhones this fall when it will be pushed out is the addition of a dedicated camera button, sort of. The volume up hardware button on the side will be used to trigger the shutter and snap the picture.

Windows Phone users definitely know that a dedicated hardware camera button is a requirement for any Windows Phone but Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Windows Phone Program Management, wanted to emphasize that even more. In the context of news dominated by WWDC, Belfiore let his followers know that Windows Phone has been shipping with a dedicated camera button for eight months now. Also, it can be used to wake the device up and go straight to the camera app from sleep mode so the time from your pocket to snapping the picture is a matter of a couple of seconds.

Update: The other two tweets are rather self explanatory, Joe Belfiore (and the entire Redmond team we’re sure) is feeling flattered. Truth is there are several car manufacturers but only one person who invented the wheel.
