In a regular set of features to ITProPortal.com, under the banner of Quick Tips, we are publishing ways for you to get the best out of your mobile phone, along with its operating system.

In today's guide we are listing the emoticons in the latest version of the Windows Phone 7 platform, known as 'Mango' or Windows Phone 7.5 - courtesy of windowsteamblog.

All the below are keyboard short-cuts to icons inside of the OS, which can be used to express how you feel or just added for fun to the likes of SMS, instant messages or emails.

Not all of these are completely new to 'Mango' although you may or may not know about them all, but we thought we would bring them to you as there were many that even we weren't aware of.
