WP7 Mango Also Brings People Hub Messenger, Asian Support


We've heard about the newly uncovered five awesome features coming to Windows Phone 7 with the Mango update earlier today but the features keep leaking in and we've got a feeling nobody will complain about them.

We already know that Mango will add support for Asian languages and the images posted on Cnblogs -- pulled but saved by Liveside -- prove it. Additionally, besides Twitter integration Steve Ballmer talked about at MWC, we now get more sense of the Windows Live Messenger integration in same People hub, which will allow you to send an IM to someone straight from the hub.

There's also the highly anticipated improved SkyDrive sync in the Office hub which will enable you to sync Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, with each type wearing its own colored tile. Add these to Bing Audio, Bing Vision, Turn-by-turn navigation, dictation, podcast support, fast app switching, IE9, Twitter integration and who knows what else Microsoft has in store and you've got yourself a pretty decent Windows Phone 7.5
