One Mobile Ring has caught up with Eric Hermelee, Microsoft's Director of the Mobile Communications Business at an event in London. Where we obtained a hands-on briefing and demonstration of the Windows Phone 7 ‘Mango’ update, which is being rolled out to handsets running WP7 later on in the year. OMR has captured this detailed walkthrough of the upcoming OS for your viewing pleasure, with better use of live titles, the group messaging feature, pictures being brought in from Facebook, contact history, threaded messages, auto face detection for tagging, various ways to share media, multitasking, IE9 with HTML5 support, Bing integration, local scout and more Xbox live features - all of which are new to Windows Phone 7 ‘Mango’.
