Microsoft has rolled out a fresh new update of Windows Phone 7, promisingly called Mango.

Mango is version 7.5 of Windows Phone 7 and brings an array of much-needed improvements and a host of new features. If we were to make a rough estimate, about 500 new changes have been made, some quite obvious and some subtle.

Starting from today itself, Windows Phone users can upgrade to the new version.

Mango update necessary for competition:- An update to Windows Phone 7 became quite clear when Microsoft realized that Windows Phone 7 lacked a number of features that users have now come to expect from their smartphones.

So what exactly has technology giant brought to the table with Mango?

Microsoft has made significant improvements to the way contacts are handled, and has given Windows Phone 7.5 a more social focus. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are now seamlessly integrated into contacts.

Another change that users will appreciate is the threading of messages and conversations. Remember the connected emails appearing as a whole in Gmail?

With Mango, messages which are part of the same conversation are grouped together into a single piece. For business users, there is extended support for Microsoft Exchange and Outlook. Also, you can now compose messages using your voice.

Starting from today itself, Windows Phone users can upgrade to the new version. For those crazy about apps, there is now a plethora of apps available for Mango in the Microsoft Marketplace. There are now about 30,000 apps for you to choose from.

This may not seem too stellar compared to the hundreds of thousands of apps available for Android or Apple, but it tells us that the platform is gaining increased attention from developers.

Microsoft has integrated Bing into many areas of Mango, from its location apps to the new databases on restaurants and retail stores. Mango is version 7.5 of Windows Phone 7 and brings an array of much-needed improvements and a host of new features.

Better music & internet experience:- A new music identification feature should be good news for music lovers. The moment you play any recorded music, Bing will attempt to identify the song and add the cover art and song titles, which you can then open in the Zune Marketplace app. Windows Phone users can upgrade to the new version. For those crazy about apps, there is now a plethora of apps available for Mango in the Microsoft Marketplace. There are now about 30,000 apps for you to choose from.

Zune integration in Mango has been greatly improved. Microsoft has made significant improvements to the way contacts are handled, and has given Windows Phone 7.5 a more social focus.

On the browser front, Microsoft has moved from Internet Explorer 7 to IE9. The IE9 interface is quite minimalistic, giving you more room for your pages.
