    Microsoft is trying hard with the
    window7.5 phone to stand apart for good from the mobile space kings (ANDROID
    and Apple) but, may be Microsoft will still have to wait for the features of
    much awaited iOS 5 and Ice Cream sandwich to be disclosed. Apart from the IE9
    browser, there are 2 features among the reported 500 features of Mango, those
    are Quick Cards and Local Scout. Though both the features are identical, the
    Local Scout will give the info about the events happening in the neighborhood
    whereas, the Quick Cards displays all the info about a searched item in Bing.
