Screenshots on Windows Phone coming soon, maybe, potentially, sort of, I think.

A few days ago I wrote about how Windows Phone 7 phone phones don’t let you take screenshots (at the consumer end) and how that I thought it was a bad thing.

I decided to ask Microsoft why and so through the deep throat backchannel medium of an email to their PR, I did. Here’s what I got back:

“We are aware of the interest in having screen shot support in Windows Phone and it is something that we are considering”.

We’ll, there’s a thing. They know people want it and are considering adding it. That’s about as much as you can hep for really.

I was very tempted to add EXCLUSIVE to the title of this post, but resisted. Think yourself lucky.
