At the Mango launch this week we found ourselves keen to get this latest update on our Windows Phone 7 handsets. The problem is that, although the demos Microsoft gave suggest it's ready for general use, this is apparently not the case, with this update only due to arrive in autumn this year.
Key features all seem to work though. The unified email inbox and groups to help you manage and communicate with your contacts in a logical way were all demonstrated and seemed functional.
We were impressed by the BA app demo, but we aren't sure if it will serve any practical purpose. Even so, it's good to see developers being enthusiastic about the platform, and this can only be a good thing for the platform long-term.
There were a lot of things that weren't shown off though. The much-anticipated copy and paste didn't get demonstrated and we didn't see much evidence of Skype or MSN Messenger either.
