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.

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.
