SkyDrive capabilities arriving in Mango update
Microsoft has provided yet another preview of the upcoming Windows Phone 7 update, referred to as Mango. Following Apple's iCloud announcement, Microsoft has quickly highlighted the cloud-based features that will be available on WP7 handsets. SkyDrive is touted as a competitive option, enabling devices to automatically upload photos to cloud storage.
SkyDrive albums are then accessible from the web, or from the Pictures hub that is built into the Windows Phone platform. The Mango update will expand the integration, enabling users upload videos or share photos via e-mail, text, or IM. Other enhancements will include document browsing, based on the folders that users have configured for their SkyDrive accounts.
Mango is expected to arrive sometime this fall.
