Win 7 Phone Mango Update Imminent

Windows Phone 7 may get a much-needed kick in the pants this week with the possible release of Mango, the code name for Windows Phone 7.5.

The update, rumored to start shipping out by OEMs this week, switches between apps faster, multitasks and offers "multiple live tiles."
