Hot on the heels of the NoDo release drama, we've started seeing rumors of Mango being in the wild floating around more and more, and today, Wmpoweruser published a video of what appears to be Mango running on an HD2.
"The Dark Force Team" is the team that previously hacked Windows Phone 7 onto the HD2, and in a seemingly innocent video of NoDo on the HD2, the recorder "accidentally" lets another device into shot, which shows a new search button in the app list. Neowin has confirmed that the search button is a part of Mango, and is a solution to the ever-growing application list problem, and will save a lot of scrolling.
Mango is pinned to include IE9, multitasking, as well as other enhancements -- one of which is rumored to be an "entertainment update" for Zune -- and is due out towards the end of this year.
NoDo, the first major update for WP7 which was just published by Microsoft this month, brings Copy & Paste, as well as performance boosts to the platform. NoDo is a welcome update for many, and is still currently rolling out to many users worldwide.
