Windows Phone 7.5 - in the Works


It is assumed that all WP7 devices will be eligible for the upgrades. Microsoft is working on updates to Windows Phone 7 with early 2011 release dates expected. Now we've got information that a big update is arriving at the end of the summer and may be called Windows Phone 7.

Early in 2011, we can expect updates that will add copy and paste to the platform as well as CDMA support allowing Verizon and Sprint to carry the phones. In-app downloads and more multitasking support may also be in one of the two updates.

Now we have rumors of a big update that may arrive at the end of the summer. It is code named Mango and may bear the name Windows Phone 7.5 when released. The big addition is HTML5 as well as browser support for Silverlight. Far Eastern languages should also be in there. Microsoft Exchange support in Windows Phone 7 is pretty limited compared to Windows Mobile 6.x so there is a lot of room for improvement. Hopefully more supported policies there will make it in the update to give enterprise customers more reasons to consider the platform.
