Neat. Now when will Windows Phone carry support for Video MMS.

Does this still give carriers the option to skip this update? I have the HTC Trophy for Verizon and still no update after Mango. The disappearing keyboard is so frustrating...

This isn't an update. This is a lower-spec requiring version of the WIndows Phone operating system, somewhat akin to Windows 7 Starter for netbooks, versus the fuller-spec Windows7 Home Premium, or Ulitmate

I do like Windows Phone and I'm looking seriously forward to it. However it is so strange to see those so called high end windows phone having specs equivalent to those mid range Android (512MB, single core 1.5Ghz) and price fully unlocked for more than $600.

Windows Phone handsets are not as powerful because they don't need to be. I have a Focus Flash running a 1.4 GHz single core processor, and it is much faster than many of the new dual-core Androids out there. The OS is much lighter than Android.
I want to also add that while the OS is "lighter" that doesn't mean it lacks features. If I were you I would at least pick a Windows Phone and use it for the first 30 day trial period. Most carriers allow you to exchange phones one time during the first 30 days.

Cheering for this to work. Both Nokia and Microsoft are really betting on tango to open up a world of sales. Be nice to see this partnership get rewarded.

folks what impresses me most about Windows 7 series Tango class smart phones is that
they can run 95% of Windows series 7 smart phone's current apps that means you can really do some thing with these cheap Windows smart phones that's cool!
