This is my nest (shortly to become The Verge) have published an updated review of Windows Phone 7.5 (aka Mango).

Put simply, regardless of your preconceptions, Windows Phone finally deserves an honest look the next time you’re ready to buy a phone — particularly as we start to see new devices come to market over the next few weeks.
