Microsoft and Nokia announced earlier this year that the cellphone company would begin making smartphones running Windows Phone software. Now Nokia is confirming that it’s first such phones will run the next version of Windows Phone, code-named Mango. It’s due out this fall, although it’s not yet clear if Nokia will actually offer Mango phones this fall or early next year.

Nokia has said in the past that it could take 2-years to make the transition from Symbian to Windows Phone (although that might be the timeline for a total transition, meaning Symbian and Windows Phone will co-exist for a while).

You can find out more about Mango in the demo video after the break, which not only shows the new operating system, but also compares certain features to Android, iOS, and BlackBerry.
