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.

WIND Mobile seems to be focusing on versatility and a broader appeal more and more as time goes on, and this latest rumor definitely helps support that. Apparently, WIND Mobile will soon announce their WINDtab hardware payment option, which is very similar to KOODO's tab, and Virgin Mobile's relatively new SuperTab options. Basically, customers will be able to get up to $150 off of the purchase price of hardware, with a tab being kept of the outstanding amount. Each month, 10% of the customer's bill will be applied to the current tab amount owing, and customers have the option of paying off more if they choose. Users will also have the option of upgrading their device at any time, but will have to pay off the WINDtab balance before doing so.

No word yet on exactly when the WINDtab will be announced or launch, but we should see it relatively soon. It's certainly good to see carriers of all kinds focusing on bringing more options to their customers, and this should definitely help WIND Mobile appeal to those who want low costs but many options to choose from. What do you think about WIND Mobile introducing a tab system?
