Mango

I've avoided Windows Phone 7 because I've read that it doesn't allow third party applications to have proper internet access, they can only use HTTP, which prevents things like Remote Desktop and SSH clients from working. I'd love for Microsoft to release a client with NLA support so I can remote into my home PC from my phone. Although I still haven't heard of such clients, the main stumbling block will apparently be removed in September:

Mango, expected in September, will feature TCP/IP sockets for devs building conversational applications like chat and IM.

As much as I like my Symbian based phone, there are some annoying quirks. Perhaps my next upgrade will be to a Microsoft based phone, especially if they port IE9 to Windows Phone 7, as they claim they will with Mango.

EDIT: Apparently they'll drop the "7" with Mango and simply be Windows Phone.
