Have you been curious about Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)? Maybe you want to try it out without standing around in some store? Microsoft just made it easy to do exactly that on your iOS or Android phone. No installations required.
You know what we need more of in our mobile gaming? We need a round of applause every time we complete a stage. And maybe some sympathetic groaning when we heroically fail at a tricky juncture.
