Breakdown: All the Mango Goodness

May 25, 2011 No Comments


We heard tons of amazing stuff coming to Windows Phone through the Mango update yesterday. Here is a list of pretty much everything that was covered.

  • Threads-Switch between text, Facebook chat, and Windows Live
    Messenger, within the same conversation.
  • Groups-Group contacts into personalized Live Tiles to see the
    latest status updates and quickly send a text, email, or IM to the whole group,
    right from the Start Screen.
  • Multitasking-Quickly switch between apps while preserving battery life
    and performance
  • Improved Live Tiles-Get real-time information from apps without having to
    open them.
  • Local Scout-Provides hyper-local search results and recommends nearby
    restaurants, shopping, and activities in an easy-to-use guide
  • Internet Explorer 9-Browse with our built-in version, plus support for
    HTML5 and hardware-accelerated graphics
  • 4GMango Will Bring 4G To Windows Phone 7
  • Twitter & LinkedIn – will be Integrated with Windows Phone
  • QuickCards – Mango will take Bing searches to a whole new level. Pretty much any information that you might be searching for on Bing will be put into quickcards for easily accessible information.
  • Bing Vision – What Bing vision does is allows you to use your WP7 camera to visually do a web search.

What made you most excited about where Microsoft is going with the platform? They are all great additions to the OS, but personally I think Quickcards will be what stands out in the end. When we are searching for something, that is exactly what I want to see on a mobile device.
