Windows Phone 7 Mango Have Hidden Feature

Written on August 25, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

A hidden feature of Windows Phone 7 Mango has been discovered on late Wednesday. Look out for the hotspot!

A discovery on late Wednesday revealed that Windows Phone 7 has a hidden mobile hotspot feature.¬†While not revealed in public, and might have no one officially, an Internet sharing section enable users share a 3G or 4G link over Wi-Fi for up to five people — much like Android, iPhone and BlackBerry 7 devices. The code is in at least the gold master build (7720.68), and could exist on all Windows phones.

Popular ChevronWP7 contributor, Rafael Rivera, confirmed the said code and speculated that – like Apple – the feature depended on a carrier profile that enables it. Almost all carriers who object to letting customers tether or use a hotspot out of the box often want to test the feature first before they enable it and begin to charge subscribers.

Several Mango features, like multitasking, the IE9-based browser and deeper voice control, are public. Whether or not all of those are revealed to the masses isn’t evident yet. Even the currently shipping IS12T, which is the world’s first Mango phone, doesn’t have all its features readily available.

Windows Phone 7 Mango Firmware Leaks

Written on August 15, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Windows Phone 7 Mango's stocked RTM was leaked out during the weekend. Thanks to Hobbyists!

Hobbyists had successfully posted a downloadable stock version of the RTM (release to manufacturing) build of Windows Phone 7 Mango during the weekend. XDA-Developers forum member said that the 7720 build is the reference version and isn’t optimized specifically for any device. As such, some special features may be missing.

The OS will work on a core level on most WP7 hardware. Chassis guidelines from Microsoft so far had led every phone to run the same Snapdragon processor families and otherwise have much of the same part mix inside.

Upgrading is nonetheless a risky move for almost all owners, since it won’t come along with Microsoft approval and by means breaks the warranty. As such, owners who want to patch to a newer version of Mango likely won’t have an option except for getting a separate version of the generic updated build or reverting back to the original firmware to do the usual upgrade method.
