Windows "Earlier this morning, the Windows Phone development team officially signed off on the release to manufacturing build of 'Mango' - the latest version of the Windows Phone operating system. This marks the point in the development process where we hand code to our handset and mobile operator partners to optimize Mango for their specific phone and network configurations. Here on the Windows Phone team, we now turn to preparing for the update process. The Mango update for current Windows Phone handsets will be ready this fall, and of course will come pre-installed on new Windows Phones." Myself and those three others who use a WP7 device rejoice.

It seems they are turning Windows Phone 7 into a "feature phone". Ie not a smart phone.

see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mango_%28WP7%29

I mean linkedin, twitter, facebook etc, are part of the OS itself.


Er, having more features out of the box makes the phone somehow less of a smartphone?

Well if i don't like a feature that came pre installed/configured on my smart phone i can uninstall/hide it.

Can you uninstall/hide the "people hub" on windows phone 7 or "Facebook Places" or "Windows Live Messenger" ?

If not then these are "features" of the phone meaning its a "feature phone".
