Microsoft recently held a Windows Phone preview event, meant to show off some of the new updates coming to the platform. As expected, the topic of focus was Mango, the next OS version of Windows Phone. Apparently Mango will bring forward 500 new features to "push the boundaries of the smartphone experience around communications, apps, and the Internet."

One of the new features included will be "Threads", which will allow users to switch between text, Facebook chat, and Windows Live Messenger within the same conversation. It will also bring improvements to multi-tasking, make Live Tiles more dynamic and information-filled, feature Internet Explorer 9, and much more.

According to the press release, Windows Phone Mango will be available on new devices being shipped this fall, and while the update should coincide with that time frame, they state "update timing will be provided closer to availability." We'll be sure to let you know once more information is made available.

Rogers advised employees today that the Sony Ericsson X1 has been discontinued. While the handset boasts decent technical specifications, sales seem to have dwindled for the Windows Mobile device due to a large variety of alternate options available to customers. For those inquiring into the availability of the X1 in the future, the Samsung Messenger will likely be suggested as it features Windows Mobile 6.5. The Messenger also features a full QWERTY keyboard, 3.2MP camera, GPS, and HSPA connectivity.
