The Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone is the first Nokia smartphone to have Windows Phone 7.5. Its beautiful design is a head-turner. Simpler social networking keeps you connected to those who matter. Internet Explorer 9 gives you quicker browsing – plus the web like it is on your PC. And with a Carl Zeiss lens and 8-megapixel camera, you’ll shoot better photos and video.

In my previous blog i mentioned that today May 25th, 2011, As promised, Microsoft intends to unveil a more detailed and full roadmap for the Windows Phone 7 mobile line. Yesterday, Microsoft previewed the next major release of Windows Phone, code-named “Mango,” through a series of media events around the world. “Mango” will deliver more than 500 new features to push the boundaries of the smartphone experience around communications, apps and the Internet. The “Mango” release will be available for free to Windows Phone 7 customers and is scheduled to ship on new phones beginning this fall. More details on device update timing will be provided closer to availability. Windows Phone will also add support for additional languages, expand access to apps by launching Windows Phone Marketplace in new countries, and partner with new OEMs to enable expansion to new markets.
This release include features such as
- Threads: Switch between text, Facebook chat and Windows Live Messenger within the same conversation.
- Groups: Group contacts into personalized Live Tiles to see the latest status updates right from the Start Screen and quickly send a text, email or IM to the whole group.
- Deeper social network integration: Twitter and LinkedIn feeds are now integrated into contact cards, and “Mango” includes built-in Facebook check-ins and new face detection software that makes it easier to quickly tag photos and post to the Web.
- Linked inbox: See multiple email accounts in one linked inbox. Conversations are organized to make it easy to stay on top of the latest mail.

Social engineering has become the dominant method of distribution for fake antivirus software. And most modern browsers, with one exception, do a terrible job of dealing with this type of threat. Current builds of Chrome display a
terrible flaw that puts you at greater risk than its competitors. In my testing, a malware author was able to exploit Chrome in four easy clicks. In stark contrast, Internet Explorer 9 used some new technology to flag the exact same
sites and files as suspicious, providing unmistakable warnings that have been shown to stop 95% of these attacks in their tracks. Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report
If you ever face an issue of slowness (When internet explorer is working) after installing Windows 7 SP1, Reset the internet explorer settings to their default condition.
To do this, go to Tools->Internet Options->Advance-> at the bottom there is a button “Reset”
This will resolve the slowness.
IE 9 is introducing a new anti-tracking feature to help users foil the efforts of behavioral advertisers. , called Tracking Protection List (TPL) will permit or block certain websites on the basis of preexisting lists. Users will still be able to visit them directly by clicking on a link or typing their address, but calls to them by other web pages will not be permitted. TPL builds upon the company’s existing InPrivate Filtering, but while this relies on frequency heuristics to build its ‘no go’ lists and is thus occasionally unpredictable, the new TPSs will be curated and so – hopefully – more reliable. Microsoft won’t generate the lists itself, but will instead look to third party organizations such as privacy groups or end users themselves. The lists will be an opt-in feature, and will receive regular automatic updates.
