An Early Look at Mango, Windows Phone's Next Big Update

Windows Phone is getting a giant update coming this fall called "Mango." We can't wait.

Originally planned as a way to correct some issues with the existing operating system that the Windows Phone relies on, Mango will be provided to all existing Windows Phone users free of charge. But it looks like the engineers responsible for creating Mango took things a step further, going above and beyond what was necessary to fix some of its predecessor's shortcomings.

Mango has some truly inspired features that integrate social networks into every aspect of the phone, as well as many others.

We got our hands on the beta version of Mango a bit early, and we're going to prove that Windows Phone isn't dead.
