    Looks like:

    •Bing Audio: Think Shazam, but built into Bing and we bet of course Zune Marketplace
    •Bing Vision: A full blown image scanner using your camera, it can detect, identify and search using barcodes, Microsoft Tags, QR Codes, CD’s, DVDs, Books, and text using OCR (see here for history)
    •Turn-by-turn navigation: “voice guidance during driving directions” (we heard about this awhile ago)
    •SMS Dictation: Using Microsoft's TellMe service, you can now use voice-to-text for SMS messages by tapping a microphone near the bottom

    will be joining the list of features being added to Windows Phone come Mango.

    Can't wait to update my Samsung Omnia 7! This seems like a great development and there are a lot of other features too.
