Mango update for Windows Phone 7 to include Bing Audio/Vision and Turn-by-turn directions
The Mango upgrade will also include a couple of Bing services. Bing Audio is similar to Shazam. Put your Windows Phone 7 device near a speaker playing a tune and information about the song will appear on your phone's screen. Also included will be Bing Video which is basically a scanner that will read bar codes, Microsoft tags, QR codes, DVD and CD discs, and books and texts using optical character recognition.
Once the Mango upgrade is installed, it should take your Windows Phone 7 handset to the next level.

so true... microsoft needs to get a better way to update their phones though... they should distribute it just through the zune software and not deal with carriers

Seeing these changes happen is great! I feel windows will take a great portion of the market but in the position they are in now they need to more quickly update the software to become up to par with the other guys.

There is no point in having a 12 mp camera unless you plan to blow it up on a iMAx screen.
