Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) is an update for the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system. It brings features based on user feedback as well as new enhancements. One item that missing at the launch of the WP7 operating system is  copy and pasting. New features include threaded conversations that integrates content from different messaging services such as Facebook chat, Windows Live Messenger, and text messaging. Other communications improvements include the addition of Twitter and LinkedIn feeds, voice messaging, and an integrated inbox that can now display emails from multiple accounts all at the same place. Microsoft have also strongly advertised the extended capabilities of the Internet Explorer 9 browser, as well as the Local Scout and Bing search functions. Some original features have been improved, these include better multi-tasking and home screen Live Tiles that can now display more real time information than before. The Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update will be welcomed by all current owners as it extends the functions of the devices as well as enhancing current features.
