The next Windows Phone 7 update, Mango, looks set to be a fairly major dealio. As such, there has been muchos speculation that the advances might even justify a little renumbering.
Microsoft discussed Mango in quite a bit of detail earlier in the month. It’ll bring enhanced multitasking, and developer access to the motion sensor, effectively opening the door for all sorts of augmented reality-related goodness.
The Windows Phone App Marketplace will be available in 35 countries, which looks a damn sight more impressive than the current figure of 16. A host of big name apps will also join the WP7.5 party, including Amazon, Skype and Spotify.
Windows Phone 7 seems to be getting there, slowly but surely (with the emphasis on slowly).
