Microsoft admits to omitting Windows Phone 8 features because it ‘ran out of time’

Windows Phone 8

There’s a good argument to make that Windows Phone 8 doesn’t need a central notification system because it has live tiles to display incoming information in real-time. But according to The Verge,  Microsoft’s (MSFT) Thomas Fennel admitted at the company’s BUILD 2012 developer conference that Windows Phone 8 would have had a notifications system that matches Android and iOS’s if the company hadn’t run out of time. Fennel said that the company has gotten “tons of feedback from developers that they want something like that as well” and that Microsoft is “thinking very, very hard” about building a notification center for future releases.
