If you’re like us that leak of of features slated to debut in Windows Phone 7.5 had you salivating this morning. We wanted details, we wanted video, we wanted a proper debut. Now we’ve got one, May 24th at 10:00 AM.
In addition to on device podcasts, multitasking, Twitter integration, Windows Live Messenger integration, we’re expecting Microsoft to reveal features by the truckload. How about folks; what features do you want to happen?
Some features I’m really hoping make it into Mango:
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.
Custom Ringtones are confirmed .
Im hoping for the ability to add wallpapers to the homescreen.
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.
