The Mango Update Detailed

"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.

A Different Kind Of Fruit: WP7's Mango Update To Feature IE9 Mobile

"Yes, Microsoft is going to play a very fast game of catch up on the browser front with Windows Phone 7. Currently, WP7 phones are running a version of IE Mobile, known as IE Mobile 7, which that is a variant of IE 7 with some IE 8 functionality added. But Windows Phone 7s running Mango will be running a mobile version of IE 9, Microsoft's latest, HTML5-compliant IE browser that the company is expected to release to the Web this spring."

Before anyone gets excited, Mango is due later this year; the update coming soon (with copy & paste) is codenamed NoDo, and has been delayed to March. Microsoft is expected to release more details about the Mango update at Mobile World Congress starting tomorrow, so we'll probably learn soon enough what else to expect. I'd be interested in particularly at the pace of updates - Will Microsoft display the kind of commitment that Google and Apple have given their respective platforms by frequent support updates? Will there be any interim updates at all? Stay tuned.
