Nokia Conversations have confirmed that this will be the build of the OS which their first Windows Phone will launch on and have given a great list of improvements which we will share with you below

Communications

  • Better social integration – Facebook was already deeply integrated into Windows Phone. 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 inboxes 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.

Smarter 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 showing in local cinemas).
  • Multitasking – switch quickly between apps and allow apps to run in the background.

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.
