Windows Phone 7.5, named Mango, has finally started rolling out from Microsoft and carriers to existing Windows Phone devices. Mango has been in testing since around late June, so it's just about time that it has started rolling out.

We've reviewed the LG Quantum, the Samsung Focus, and the HTC Arrive. And every single time we looked at WP7, we had the same complaints: software, software, and software. Thankfully, Mango promises to bring some much-needed improvements to Microsoft's mobile OS, the most important of them being: Internet Explorer 9, with HTML5 support; better email support; and more integration with more of Microsoft's services (Skype, Xbox Live, etc.)

There are some really awesome Mango phones coming out for this holiday season, like the HTC Titan and Radar. There are and will be others, as well, so I hope you're ready for Microsoft to rock your world in the coming months.
