Microsoft today announced another new feature for its upcoming Windows Phone 7 Mango update. With Mango, Microsoft will include more on-board ringtones, but will also allow users to create their own. According to Microsoft, it will support sound files that are less than 39 seconds in length, smaller than 1MB, and are DRM-free MP3s/WMAs. Ringtones can be added via the desktop Zune client, noted Microsoft, and it said it expects a large number of ringtone creation apps to debut in the Marketplace later this fall when Mango launches. More details will become available closer to Mango's availability.

And we're supposed to be excited?

BlackBerry and Android users have had the ability to do this from the start. MS is always a step or two behind.
My W600i from 2006 could do this, and that phone didnt have this 39 second or 1 megabyte restriction on it, either. Bravo to microsoft for doing something that had already been done for 10 years.
