Check out PocketNow’s super in-depth preview of WP7 Mango

If you aren’t familiar with the latest build for WP7, the most significant upgrade is the new mango colored tiles! Just kidding. Mango-orange colored theme aside, Microsoft is bringing over 500 new features that will reflect changes all across the board from music, videos and pictures to increased social media integration.

2. Download Zune to Beta Mango client (build 4.8.2098.0)
