Windows Phone 7.5 Mango will eventually be available on handsets that include dual-core processors and Long Term Evolution 4G, said Microsoft's Andy Lees in an interview with AllThingsD. While Lees didn't make any specific product announcements, he said that the newest WP7.5 devies will be "all single core, but I suspect that they will be faster in usage than any dual-core phone that you put against it, and that’s the point." Lees said that Microsoft needed to optimize its platform for dual-coree chips, which is why it hasn't supported them before. Devices with dual-core chips are coming.

Lees didn't say when phones with dual-cores and LTE will arrive. Lees also indicated that Microsoft is already working hard on the next version of Windows Phone so that it can keep pace with its Android and iOS rivals.
