Facebook Windows Phone 7 Mango update next week

With the new Mango update to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system now widely available, it looks like we will be getting an updated Mango-based version of the Windows Phone 7 Facebook app. Pocket-Lint.com reports that during Nokia World on Tuesday, it was revealed that the Mango-based Facebook app should be released sometime next week.

The cool thing about the Mango edition of Facebook is that users will have the ability to "deep link" into the app. No, it's not a kinky cyber sex act, it simply means that you will be able to see your Facebook messages and your News Feed on the homepage of your Windows Phone 7 smartphone. So you will be able to quickly see if someone gives you an unwanted Mafia Wars 2 invitation.

There's not much more info about what other features the app will contain at this point. We would like to see the Facebook app order pizza and give us tickets to go see The Book of Mormon on Broadway but that's just us. We do know that the app is supposed to work with Windows Phone 7's imbedded functionality; again: not to do with sex.

With the announcement of Nokia's Lumia 710 and 800 smartphones and their launch in the UK and other territories planned for November, we suspect that the Mango version of the Facebook app will be getting a lot more use than the current version.
