The Race Is On – Mango on Bell Mobility? Not Yet :(

So far there has been no update flag on my HTC HD7 phone. :(

According to this grid, Bell Mobility is “Delivering update”:


What does this mean? Well, I suppose that it means that we just need to be patient! ;)

But, I don’t want to. :(

Mango Features

Rick Claus of Microsoft showed me a lot of Mango goodness well at the iTech Summit in Calgary last week and they sure looked great.

One of the features that would make life a lot easier will be the ability to transition text messaging with someone to Windows Live Messenger and then back again to text messaging seamlessly. We text a lot here with those conversations moving to WL Messenger and back again with IT support folks.

Another feature that looked really neat was the ability to text message someone totally hands free. Though the interpretation may or may not come across properly. I love spell check’s occasional replacement for a mistyped “things” with “thongs”. We all know where that could lead depending on the recipient if not paying attention! 8*O
