Try Windows Phone 7.5 Mango on your iPhone, No Jailbreak Required!

While Apple and Google continue to be the big dogs of the smartphone world, Microsoft continues to lead the resistance with their own Windows Phone 7 platform.

If you’re at all curious about what they’ve come up with, there’s good news: Now you can try Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” right on your iPhone, no jailbreak required!

OS X Daily reports that Microsoft has created a (rather impressive) new HTML5 demo to show Android and iOS users what life is like on the other side. Just open Mobile Safari and head to Microsoft’s demo site (http://aka.ms/wpdemo) for a hands-on taste of Mango.

Windows Phone 7 is very, very different from the iPhone, and there are both good and bad elements to the platform – but hey, Microsoft deserves some credit here – at least Windows Phone 7 is original, which is more than can be said for certain other platforms…

I won’t spoil the punch with my own observations, though – go try it for yourself (and let us know if you find Mango to be juicy and/or delicious)!

    Cool! I had the chance to play with a WP7 this weekend and to be honest I was quite impressed.

      It’s a great phone OS, but nobody has heard about it. Or if they have, they’re like “Eh, iPhones are better” or “Eh, I already have my Android device…”

      Plus, a lot of WP7 apps just aren’t very good yet. Needs a bigger user base. But I agree – it’s very impressive.

    It’s actually a pretty good OS. Works better that windows :P, but I’ll stay with iOS. IOS is just a little more simple and clean.

    I’ve played with win 7 phones before and eh it’s ok.  It just doesn’t have the same complete package that iOS has or sheer customization/geek factor that Android has.  It’s not bad for a mobile OS but it’s destined to go the way of the Zune because the other offerings have multiple distinctions that set them apart and make them a platform people want to gravitate to.
