We've just got confirmation that the next major update to the Windows Phone mobile Operating System (OS) will bring its own version number. Obviously Microsoft though that the update, codenamed Mango is bringing enough recent functionality to the table to be worthy of it.

So Mango, which will be available to developers from May and will bring the long awaited multitasking support, will instead go by Windows Phone 7.5. Some other goodies brought by this update include better integration of third party apps, which should offer improved utilize of the Live Tiles on the homescreen.

Microsoft will also finally be granting 3rd party developers access to the capturing camera and motion sensor libraries so they can create more elaborate apps. They will also be improving the Windows Marketplace accessibility and monetization opportunities.

All in all, it seems that Windows Phone 7.5 will be a worthy rival to the forces that are currently dominating the smartphone market - Android an iOS. That's why we believe it's a fine concept to give it a recent name so it would be easier for customers to spot the difference.

Now how about a more specific release date for discontinue users and information on specific device upgrades?
