New Windows Phones Dialed In

Windows Phone 7 hasn't been out that long, but already Windows Phone 7.5 -- code-named for some godforsaken reason "Mango" (not sure what is so wrong or confusing about Windows Phone 7.5) -- seems ready to ship. In fact, the heat of August might bring the lesser heat of Mango.

The good news for Windows Phone 7 customers (if you are one, share your impressions at dbarney@redmondmag.com) is you can upgrade to Mango, er, Windows Phone 7.5.

I use a BlackBerry and am entirely underwhelmed. I can move to my son's Android phone, but the "a" key sticks. Or I can wait 'til next summer for a free iPhone upgrade. Or I can go the Microsoft route. What do you advise? Tell me what to do at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
