Mango indeed to be called Windows Phone 7.5


Microsoft has been pretty cagey about the name of the next version of their new mobile OS, which the company only recently at MIX11 confirming the code name is Mango.

Now on their official website for Microsoft partners, Microsoft has made it clear the next version will indeed be called Windows Phone OS 7.5.

While the actual nomenclature may not seem to matter, Mango contains so much more than the current release of Windows Phone 7 it could easily have qualified to be called Windows phone 8, and it does  make one wonder what it would take to vault the OS one whole version number up to the 8 moniker – possibly a built-in messenger app?
