Microsoft's budding mobile OS is finally learning to share, just like the big kids
. Windows Phone's graduation to Mango comes not only with Twitter integration
, SkyDrive music streaming
, and multitasking
, but with internet connection sharing as well. The new feature showed its toggle switch at WPCentral
this week, riding in on a Microsoft flashed Focus running Mango build 7720.68. According to the tell-all image, Windows Phones running Mango will be able to share their cellular internet connection with up to 5 devices -- reportedly draining its battery with unprecedented efficiency. ChevronWP7
collaborator Rafael Rivera confirmed over Twitter that the feature is baked into Mango, guessing that it would require a "carrier 'update' to enable." Yeah, we wouldn't be surprised.
