I’m sure most of you reading this will already know we released Beta 2 of the developer tools for Windows Phone Mango last week. In addition, if you’re a registered AppHub developer, you’ll be able to update a developer-unlocked Windows Phone 7 (retail) device to the matching Beta 2 build of the Mango OS. You’ll receive a separate invite for this from “Microsoft Connect” titled “Invitation from Microsoft Connect” – keep an eye out for it.

Here are some key links gathered together in one place:
