Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” technical preview

June 21, 2011 |

As with the initial release of Windows Phone, Microsoft have released a certain number of WP Devices running a pre release version of the next major update for Windows Phone code named ” Mango”. It seems like today, whatever non disclosure agreement Microsoft had with the people they were shipped to, as I predicted, prominent blogs in the US have today flooded the WWW with looks at the updated OS. This is finally the look at the OS that we really want to see, sans marketing hype. It would appear that most of the writers critiquing the OS today have had the phones for at least a week, and there is a variety of perspectives across the web. There’s plenty of video, and I’ll get to that, but first what I think is the most definitive look at the OS out there. Matt Miller from ZDNet, formerly the Mobile Gadgeteer, has produced what would be the most thorough look at this release that you will find. Matt was one of the bloggers that a year before was summoned discreetly to Redmond, and given one of the first developer devices. He notes that it’s not a complete version.

There are some backend servers to be turned on and some applications and utilities still missing from this current version. These missing features and functions include:

  • Direct Twitter integration
  • WiFi tethering
  • Audio multi-tasking (I understand the Mango SDK is just getting into hands of developers so apps will have to be updated to provide this capability.)

Matt’s conclusion though is positive

Mango is what most people wanted to see from Windows Phone 7 when it was launched late last year and the 7.5 label is accurate. As a fan of Windows Phone I am excited about the update as it addresses nearly all of the issues I have with Windows Phone 7 and it is a pleasure to use. I plan to spend a lot more time with Mango over the coming months and will provided updated thoughts and experiences as more features are rolled out.

As are most of the other looks around the web
