Windows It's about time! Microsoft has just detailed its next update to Windows Phone 7. This update, codenamed 'Mango', will bump the version number from 7.0.7 to 7.1, and will include 500 new features (how Redmond reached that number, god only knows). The developer tools are out in beta form today. There's a lot of cool stuff in there, such as the already known pseudo-multitasking and the hardware accelerated Internet Explorer 9, but also a lot of stuff we didn't know anything about. Also, news on new hardware partners, and, of course, Nokia.

Its inevitable, I own a Droid X, but I gotta tell you, my old ladys focus looks, and performs very nicely. Androids "stutter" always drives me up the wall, but WP7 seems to flow like melted butter all the time. I like both, but from a visual standpoint, it just feels better.

If you're running the default DroidX rom with MotoSuck, that's your problem. Root your device and install a stock rom. Granted, that shouldn't be required, but on Android, you pretty much need to get rid of the shitty vendor bloatware on a non-Google phone for a smooth experience ;)
