Web-famous Windows watcher Paul Thurrott has come forward with new details surrounding a pair of upcoming updates for Microsoft’s mobile platform. Some details jibe with earlier reports, while others are definitely news to us. According to Thurrott, two major updates are due this year. The first, dubbed “NoDo” (possibly short for “No Donuts” — mocking Android’s Donut update, which may have been perceived as minor), will find its way to end users some time in early February. Among the features to be found in NoDo are the “copy and paste functional addition, support for the Qualcomm 7×30 smart phone chipset, a CDMA location stack, and a number of software fixes.” Later in the year, we’ll see another update currently called “Mango” internally, which will apparently bring “Internet Explorer 9 with with the Trident 5 rendering engine, HTML 5 and Silverlight, and gesture support.” Mango may include some some new entertainment features as well.
