A Few Details About 2011 WP7 Updates

XDA member abhinayp found out about some details for the upcoming 2011 updates for Windows Phone 7. The first update, rumored to be announced at CES in Las Vegas, is called “NoDo” (No Donuts) reportedly in response to Android 1.6 (Donut), apparently NoDo will RTM in January, with consumers seeing the update in February. NoDo will have copy and paste, CDMA support, and support for Qualcomm’s 7×30 chipset. The second update is Mango, which has been termed a “Major” update to WP7 and should see HTML5 and Silverlight support within the browser, as well as bits of the Trident 5 rendering engine contained within IE9.
Surely, we will hear of more upcoming updates in the next days, so stay tunned.

Paul Thurrott from Windows Phone Secrets have revealed, well, some secrets about the upcoming Windows Phone 7 updates.
He writes that we can expect two updates this year – the first expected to be announced this week, but only pushed in February by carriers, will be called NoDo (for no donuts), will bring support for the Qualcomm 7×30 smart phone chipset, a CDMA location stack, and a number of software fixes.
Of note is that the Snapdragon-based Qualcomm 7×30 chipset comes with HDMI output and the ability to play back 720p video on both its host device and a HDTV. It also supports Flash 10.1.
The next Mango, will come some time later in the year, and bring Internet Explorer 9 with with the Trident 5 rendering engine, HTML 5 and Silverlight, and gesture support. This 75xx (actually version 7.2) update will apparently bring additional, unrelated features as well.
Paul also mentions that Microsoft does not intend to push a number of small updates, but only a few large updates per year, which should mean long waits between each one.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
