Windows Phone Mango preview
I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and we are here in New York where Microsoft just previewed their new Windows Phone Mango update.
There are actually over 500 features coming with the update, but they're concentrating on 3 key areas and that's communications, the browser and apps.
Some of the highlights of the update include a group contacts now and as well as linked inboxes, so you can now link your personal inboxes
which is something we've been looking forward to.
With the internet browser, you now get IE 9.0 with support for HTML5.
And as for apps, you get third party multitasking and they give a demo here and it looks pretty easy so that's a big feature we've been looking for.
A couple other highlights include Twitter and link in integration into your people tab as well as dynamic live tiles for your apps, so you can see what's happening right on your start screen.
All these features will be coming with the Mango update due out this fall.
They're not talking about
handsets yet but we do think we will hear more about it in late summer or fall, so we look forward to some more hardware and Mango update.
I'm Bonnie Cha.
