As you most probably know a massive Windows
Phone update is scheduled to appear in late 2011.
Codenamed Mango, it's set to bring multitasking
and a mobile browser based on IE9 among other
goodies. Now, however, a tipster at WMPoweruser
has a different information - he/she claims this browser will be separately released from Mango
"well before fall 2011" and will support not only
HTML5, but also Silverlight. This info, if true, is certainly a great news for all
early adopters of Windows Phone 7, since a good
mobile browser is of great importance for most
smartphone owners. The first Windows Phone update, codenamed NoDo, is expected to roll out in the coming days.
