Windows Phone 7.5 Mango
Microsoft has just recently released Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Microsoft has tried to get their piece of the Mobile marked for years without any big success so far, but something tells me that with the new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango they really mean business this time. So why do I think that?
- Microsoft started an alliance with Nokia a couple of years ago. Nokia has always made very good phones but has for years had problems when it comes to the software on their phones. I think their alliance is a very smart move from Microsoft as well as Nokia.
- All Microsoft employees are getting a Windows Phone 7.5. In that way they will get a taste of their own medicine and will all be ambassadors for their new product.
- Not only Nokia will get access to sell phones with Windows Mango. Also HTC, Acer, Dell, Samsung, LG and properly even more are coming with Windows Phone 7 phones.
- Microsoft has the best possibility of all to make strong integration with online sync of MS Exchange Mail services and the rest of the Office product suite, simply because they are making the product themself. Today you can sync mail with MS Exchange on almost all phones, but I guess in the future it will just work a little bit better with a Windows Phone
- The History of strong marketing power have learned us that when Microsoft really want something the usually gets it over time. I remember the days where Netscape was the best web browser and Novell was the best file-server. Not many people speak about Netscape and Novell anymore.
- New Marketplace – Microsoft is launching a new web based Application marketplace that already include most of the must have applications like Twitter, YouTube, Adobe Reader, Facebook, Angry Birds, DropBox and many more.

Not much use of a new mobile phone OS without a supported phone to run it on and it looks like a lot of new cool smartphones are coming with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango:

That was all from me. Now it is your turn. What do you think about the new Windows Phone Mango? Will it be a success? Will it have a change against the iPhone or will it be another mobile flop from Microsoft? Please drop me a comment below.
