Microsoft today announced the key features of the Windows Phone 7 update Mango. The new Windows Phone 7 Mango will be used on the Nokia devices. Microsoft says that, the updated version mainly focuses on certain areas to deliver a better communication, smarter apps, better internet experience.


The highlights of the three main sections are


  • Better social integration – Facebook already exists. Mango sees the arrival of Twitter and Linked-In to the mix, with the latest updates from your contacts appearing in contacts.

  • Facebook location check-ins are now also supported and there’s new facial-recognition software to make tagging photos easier before you upload them.

  • Linked inbox – This frequently-requested view allows users to combine the contents of several inbox into one. Mail is organised into conversations, so the latest updates are always at the top.

  • Threads – Carry on your conversation with SMS, Facebook chat and Windows Live Messenger on the same screen – so you can concentrate on the information, not which app you’re using.

  • Hands-free messaging – Text-to-voice and voice-to-text engines allow for easier texting and chatting while you’re on the move.

  • Groups – put a bunch of contacts into their dedicated Live Tile so you can quickly see their latest updates and send a text, email or IM to the whole group right from the home screen.

Better Internet
  • Internet Explorer 9 – the built-in browser provides support for HTML5 and full hardware acceleration.

  • Local Scout – This app provides hyper-local search results for information on shopping, restaurants and activities.

  • Better Bing – Mango provides new ways to search including Bing Vision, Bing Audio and voice.

Smart Apps
  • Improved Live Tiles – these can now hold more information and be more dynamic.

  • App Connect – apps can now be included in searches (e.g. when you search for ‘movies’, the results include apps that help you find films in local theaters).

  • Multitasking – switch quickly between apps and allow apps to run in the background.
