  1. Some features I’m really hoping make it into Mango:

    • Custom ringtones
    • The ability to capture screen shots
    • HTML5/CSS3 support (this is supposedly already part of the package)
    • More live tiles (I think I read somewhere that you’re limited to something like 10 or 15 live tiles; which doesn’t seem to be enough when you already have 7 or 8 e-mail accounts set up on the phone – especially since you don’t seem to be able to disable the live tile feature on e-mail accounts; unless you delete them from your home screen)
    • Improved copy/paste support from native apps

    I’m also eagerly awaiting the addition of live tile support to the official Twitter and Facebook apps, but that’s not an OS thing; just an app thing.

    • That would be nice, too; but it’s far from a necessity to me (the tiles would basically cover up the image anyway). However, I did realize the other day that it would be nice if we could rotate the wallpaper image we use for our lock screen. Just because the image was taken in a landscape orientation doesn’t mean I want to crop half of it out to put it on my lock screen. I should be able to turn it and leave it in landscape mode to fill the screen.

      I also saw an article that said the Live Tile limit will be increased from 15 to 30 when Mango’s released. There’s also talk of a “local” Live Tile API (your calendar alerts, etc.). I’m not sure if those local live tiles will count against the limit or not.
