"The position I take on Mango is this: everyone knows there are features missing from the current version of WP7. Features like multitasking, camera streams, sockets, and more. It would be crazy for Microsoft to not add these high-demand features to WP7 as quickly as possible. This morning we can see that they are certainly adding these features, they've thought them through very carefully, and they are further along with implementation than many people predicted."
It's still a ways off, but some details of the forthcoming major update for Windows Phone 7, codenamed "Mango", were released during the MIX conference. While the slant of the released details is towards developers, I'm sure end users would be just as interested - multitaskiong, custom ringtones, multiple live tiles per app, and of course IE9. All good stuff, and hopefully with a more trouble free update process than NoDo has proved to be.
