This is good news. WP7 is a better OS today.

I love Mango, but the main reason keeping me away is stuff like missing USB-OTG and bluetooth file-sharing.

Don't use hotstop/tethering much; but definitely a step in the right direction.

in stead of update/increase the software 1 by 1 and time to time. y not produce a complete set and just ship and use directly. windows phone still lose in the market because it really lack of many important features, games, apps ...etc.

Windows phone is good, but yet mature enough, i will go for ios and android for coming 1 or 2 years, might consider WP in future once it is mature enough like nowadays android or ios.

i'm using my phone as portable wifi hotspot everyday
it's simple and easier.
no more usb cable and installing pc suite/driver.
it's glad to know that the portable wifi hotspot make it to WP7.

That's a great news!.
I personally use the hotspot feature to use internet on my Non-GSM tablet on the move, I switch on the wifi hotspot on my N8, and access the net on the big 7 inch screen of my tab. Another reason for me to upgrade to a Lumia 900.

Thats good news. Step by step WP is becoming a better OS, when WP7 was first announced i had high hopes for it but so far it has been a big disappointment. Maybe in future windows phone can become a lot more competitive.

I've had symbian, iOS and now I am on Android. I would definitely consider WP7.5/8 when my contract ends in about 12 months. I Look forward to see what the future brings for Windows devices.
