Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE leak as new Windows Phone Mango Partners ahead of Event
 
 

In about 45 minutes Microsoft will preview the next major Windows Phone 7 release dubbed Mango. Steve Ballmer said this week that there are 500 new features coming. He also teased that there are new OEMs for Windows Phones. These have already been blurted out by Microsoft in Romania found out by PocketNow. Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE will make Windows Phone 7 phones.

The first Windows Phone 7 Mango phones are expected to be launched this fall. Apple will reveal iOS 5 at the WWDC 2011 next week. I guess Microsoft's plan is to put out the features of Mango ahead to let Apple's new features look less unique or attractive. Let's see if that works.

Microsoft is actually streaming the Windows Phone 7 Mango event live. You can watch it on the Microsoft site and see if you count 500 new features. The release on the Romanian Microsoft site also lists the main new features found in Mango. Some of them have been already known. The major areas of improvements include communication, applications and web-browsing.

The highlights are IE9 with HTML5 support, Bing Vision, Music and Voice search, Hands-free messaging, Twitter and LinkedIn contacts integration, Multitasking and improved Live Tiles. See the full details in our report of the official Mango announcement.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
