Watch Joe Belfiore demonstrate the new features in WP7's Mango update in an epic video

Bringing more than 500 new features to the Windows Phone platform, the update improves on integrated communication, social networking, Live Tiles presentation and accessing the Internet, not to mention the advanced multi-tasking the platform will be getting.
The update will be available this fall, marking a full year since Microsoft's long-awaited mobile strategy revamp produced handsets with Windows Phone 7 onboard. A number of things happened since then, the most important of which was bagging Nokia as a manufacturing arm for Windows Phone handsets, but until we are waiting for the Mango release to hit WP7 devices, have a look at Joe Belfiore in action below:

Well IOS actually does have awesome battery life. Ever since I got a windows phone to replace my iPhone 4 that's the one thing I've been lamenting. That and app selection. But I don't spend half as much time playing games and watching Netflix as I did before when I had my iPhone. And my nexus 1 is about the same as my windows phone. Fact is IOS rules on battery.

iOS deffinately does not have great batterey life... Android is generally horrible... BlackBerry is respectable and batterey life would depend on the phone NOT the OS. Unlike Apple, WP7 will be featured on many different devices from different phone makers.

Joe Belfiore and the Microsoft Team has just set new standards for all phones. Each and every aspect that Joe Belfiore explained about the phone was excellent. Android fell into 2nd place on the HTMl test and as you all seen iphone was last place (the blkbrry touch didnt count since it sadly flew to an all time low. What is Next for all OS companies...will this push others to reach new heights? or Did Microsoft Just Become the team to beat?

Definitely much better!! Can't wait to see other WP7 phones. Here in EU, Samsung Focus is not sold, the Omnia is just ugly. HTC Trophy is a sh*t phone with loads of issues. All the other phones are not suitable for me. I go mad of iOS notifications (I got rid if my iPhone really fast after constant slowdowns and bad "upgrades"). Android is nice, but still.. it sucks resources and visibly lags on new devices even without using many apps. Microsoft needs to make a FAST and easy-to-use OS without sacrificing basic features (like now). Still, I am curious about some BASIC settings and features, which may be in the other 490 new ones that were not mentioned!?I do like the local scout thing and the new Bing functions, quite impressive. The presentation yesterday was OK but the word FANTASTIC and "one step further" hit my ears way too many times - just like on a Steve Jobs note. Anyway, it this a good step forward.

Well it looks like another OS has ripped off WebOs again. First it was blackberry showing off how they ripped off the multitasking cards of WebOs and now it is Win7. And for everyone who loves their improvements they stole them from everyone else. They did not do anything new or original they just ripped off great OS's like WebOs. If you want a real multitasking phone or should I saw the only true multitasking phone then go with WebOS. Oh and btw they did not set any new standards for anyone except themselves that they still have a whole lot of work to do just like blackberry does as well.
