Joe Belfiore caught in a corner by Laura Foy, epic video of WP7's Mango update ensues
We already wrote about the new features expected to hit Windows Phone 7 handsets with the upcoming update, codenamed "Mango", but it's another thing to get them demoed by the hands of Joe Belfiore himself.

As the head of Windows Phone Program Management at Microsoft, he is one of the main guys who will have the final say about what will go in the Nokia Windows Phone.

He was cornered at the MIX 11 development conference by Laura "Thug" Foy, a Microsoft internet show host, and it all ended up well for him and for us, since most of the new features got demoed on the ASUS phone that has been used as a Windows Phone 7 development platform from the onset.

The video is 15 minutes long, so if you don't feel like watching the whole thing, the universal search and app quick jump are at 2:43, the Marketplace enhancements are at 4:30, search apps at 5:45, the apps which take advantage of the now-open sensor and camera APIs, plus the new Live Tiles are at 8:00, and the real multitasking demo is at 10:50.

If you are eager to watch the whole 2 hour keynote about Windows Phone 7 at MIX, it is available here.
