Mango to include new Windows Phones

While we didn't see any new phones during the Mango Preview Event, we did hear a little hardware news.

Mango won't be available until the Fall as a free upgrade but look for new phones from existing Microsoft Partners LG, HTC and Samsung. Also look for new phones from other Microsoft Partners such as Acer, Fujitsu, and ZTE. No specs were offered on these new phones beyond having 4g support.

Andy Lees, who led the charge during the Preview Event, made special mention of the Microsoft/Nokia partnership. Expect Nokia to not only bring new devices to market but also "scale and innovation to the ecosystem".

With 500 new features and the prospect of new phones, can Fall get here any quicker?

  • Where is Dell?
  • Hopefully nowhere.
  • Please someone make a global roaming device for Sprint!!! Anyone? No, I didn't think so.
  • All of them will be 4G? That's good to know.
  • Seeing as they're coming out in the fall it only makes sense for them to be forward thinking and have 4g.I also expect all of them to have front-facing cameras to support skype, now that MS bought that and it's coming to WP for sure.The rest, hardware wise will probably just be more storage and ram now that we can multitask, expect more 16GB versions compared to 8GB and even a few 32GB "media centric/game centric" models. Likewise I think 1GB will be the new norm for this batch, as far as RAM goes, compared to 512MB.
