Microsoft digs into Samsung and HTC wallets for WP7 promotion

Microsoft has pressured Windows Phone manufacturers to boost their marketing spend promoting the platform, coaxing more ad cash out of Samsung and HTC despite having handed over millions of dollars to Nokia to push its handsets.

What we're going to do in this post is give the first really big refresh of Microsoft's current mobile OS, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, a good rundown and review. Because the vast majority of our readers are not yet Windows Phone users, I'll be padding the review with some features that've already been in place for some time - but the focus will, indeed, be on the new list of upgrades as presented in this newest, tastiest flavoring of Windows Phone.
