WP7 don't run on many different chipsets, so there isn't much different you can do with the hardware and those difficult to make high end or low end phones. This makes most WP7 phones to be quite similar in feature, it's only the look that may be a bit different, no matter if the phone is made by Nokia or LG or HTC or who ever.
One of the features that seems to missing from the list is the simplicity for app developers to send loads of advertisements to your phone and you will have to pay for it too (unless you have free data traffic on your subscription)

This isn't listed in mango as WP7 already has this ability (as do iOS and Android).
[citation][nom]Silmarunya[/nom] Where are the lower mid-end and truly high-end models? Maybe MS should widen its list of supported SoC's to cover a larger part of the market.[/citation]
MS define MINIMUM specs (and rightly so, just look at some of the cruddy low end android based phones). Its up to the phone makers whether they want to exceed those specs and make a high level phone. I'm not sure I'd want to see a low end WP7 phone, just imagine WP7 running on a 300Mhz processor with 128Mb of RAM like a lot of the knock off chinese android handsets. Ewwww.
If you are looking for customization and user friendliness Windows Phone based mobile phones are not a good option, also there isn't much free apps available for windows phone OS online. so consider buying Android based mobiles
Looks very nice I wonder if this will come out in the UK as I am due an upgrade around this time. Nokia had better start showing off there new device if they want people to start picking up there WP7 devices as all the other big names are showing off there at the mo.
