Videos: Windows Phone Mango gets positive impressions in previews.

| June 22, 2011 | 37 Replies

MobileBurn and PocketNow (and some others too I believe) have published some previews of Windows Phone Mango – the verdict is quite positive so far.

Here’s pocketnow’s post

This has an indepth written post partnered with some video demoes.

Holy cow there are a ton of new features in Windows Phone Mango! We didn’t even get to try the Twitter integration since that’s not working yet. We’ve been told that it’s working on internal servers, but the public Windows Live servers will have to be upgraded before a wider rollout. We also haven’t been able to try the app deep linking, background tasks for 3rd party apps, and in-app live tile pinning just yet, but from what we’ve seen in this preview build running on existing Samsung Focus hardware, there is a lot to look forward to. Many of these new features are mainly bringing Windows Phone up to speed with the competition, yet there are a number that are quite innovative and sure to make Windows Phone stand out above the crowd.

Cheer’s ‘meh’ for the tip.

This one is one big video.

These previews show only a small fraction of the supposed 500 feature update. Things are looking good on the Mango front, and should be all set and done by Fall/Autumn when Microsoft says it’s due.

Note that this of course coincides with Nokia’s Fall/Autumn Nokia World 2011 event, taking place in London on October 26-27th, which should/will be Nokia’s launch event for their first Windows Phone (due to ship  by Q4, ready for the holiday season).
