Am I the only one holding off on this update until somebody figures out how to sideload apps under NoDo?

I like to test beta apps off xda and for other developers, but I don't fancy spending 100 euro on a developers licence!

Lol the way he says undo instead of nodo

The way it worked for me is I times how long it takes to get an error. And then when your doing it with data on. I disconnected the data a second before it recieved an error in previous test.

Just a thing about Mango update.

Not really breaking news but anyway I was told by one of Microsoft Reps that Mango update should feature easier jumping to your apps in the right handside list by letters. So i assume that it will be contact letter enter sort of way. But still a welcome add on. Though would rather see some folders

Found quite a good comparison between WP7 and iPhone too

Heres a video demonstration of the multitasking that mango will provide. I have to admit, it looks great.

Seen the multi tasking.

But hope they add a nicer background and the ability to close an app from that.

One downfall i see there that it could create a long list of apps.

The big downfall that i have seen in iOS. If you never close your apps you could end up with a massive list of running apps in the background, and ending up restarting the device cause its just faster than trying to close them all.

I know what you mean. I used the Registry hack to get instant resuming on my Optimus 7, and at first it was terrible, because I kept forgetting to close apps, which killed the battery and slowed it down. But now I'm used to hitting the back button to close apps.

It killed my battery even without apps running in the background. I always use the back button. I was used to that on Android and do the same here. But sure will have to wait till Mango. And it better come this year before I loose all hope in MS.

After Mango I would be quite satisfied the way WP7 works. The next step will be to avail full services from Bing and Zune. I want Zune pass and Bing navigation and voice search

I'm happy enough with it as it is now tbh. Multitasking was never a big deal to me. All I want to see, like you said, is full Bing and Zune features.

I reset my phone earlier, and didn't connect it to my Windows Live ID right away. I synced my music to it first, that the Zune hub was totally different. I could see Bio's of the artists I was playing, and images of them too, it looks much more like the Zune HD interface.
