Windows Phone 7 Mango starting to be fed to developers


Windows Phone 7 hasn't exactly been Microsoft's shining star. Sometimes with WP7 devices, the hardware sucks, the software sucks, or both are absolutely horrid. Microsoft has realized that this is true and is making adjustments accordingly, starting with the next release of Windows Phone 7. 

That new release will be named Mango, which we've talked about before. There are plenty of juicy features being added, including deep Twitter integration, multitasking, and a better email client, among plenty of other things. The latter two, multitasking and email, were killer problems I have with WP7 at its current state. Accidentally exiting out of something by hitting a capacitive Windows logo is a real pain in the rear-end. 

If you're a WP7 developer and you haven't gotten your beta yet, don't worry. Microsoft says that the full rollout will be done sometime within the next couple of weeks.
