Windows® Phone “Mangoâ€ Reaches RTM Stage
Windows Phone “Mango” is only a fall away to reach the handset market as it has finally passed the RTM (released to manufacturing) stage. This is the stage where the final configuration or optimization is made in the Mango software according to the hardware and networking configuration of third parties. Once the Mango software has been “hand coded” with the required configurations, it will be ready for the next stage of marketing, which will be done in collaboration with the handset manufacturer.
Windows Phone “Mango” will be the next updated version of Window Phone, which was debuted in 2010. Ever since the announcement of the next version-“Mango”, new features have been added to the Mango series which include the following:
- Conversation view: This feature in Widows Phone “Mango” facilitates the interaction amongst multiple users in their e-mail discussions. This enables multi-tasking amongst different users.
- Â Threads: All your communication can be integrated into a single communications portal through the help of threads. This means that you Facebook, instant messenger (IM), and text conversation can occur in one location instead of multiple locations.
- Â Multitasking of Apps: Mango allows users to perform more than one function that includes connecting apps to search results and connecting to music and video hubs.
- Efficient IE 9: Mango is said to have the most efficient Internet Explorer (IE) 9 till date on Windows Phone as it will have support for HTML 5 websites.
These are just some of the updates that Terry Meyerson, Corporate Vice President, Window Phone Engineering, has identified in his recent blog post. Let us hope that all these changes are incorporated in the next Windows Phone-“Mango”, which is scheduled for release next fall.
