Windows Phone 7.5 Mango to bring more than 500 new features
The Windows Phone buzz is building up as we approach tomorrow’s announcement of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, but some information about the scale of the update has already been spilled. And it’s going to be big - Mango will bring 500 new features, Microsoft’s very own Steve Ballmer said in a speech at the Japanese Microsoft Developer Forum 2011.

Some of the anticipated major updates to the platform include:
-    Multi-tasking for third-party apps,
-    Twitter integration in the People Hub,
-    Office 365 and SkyDrive support,
-    Microsoft Lync Mobile app,
-    IE9 Mobile,
-    Custom ringtones,
-    Improved Marketplace,
-    Wider language support,
-    More than 1500 new APIs.

But it’s the rumored nine new Windows Phone devices that we heard about just recently, that could turn out to be of crucial importance for the platform. In that regard, Ballmer mentioned that tomorrow’s event will also unveil details about phone makers and carriers, hinting at the possibility of new product announcements. In any case, tomorrow will surely be a pivotal day for Redmond’s platform, so stay tuned.
