The update which is codenamed "Mango" will effectively amount to Windows Phone 7.5 - which is also rumored to be the actual name when released. Mango is rumored to bring Silverlight runtime and HTML5 support to WP7. Other features might include Far Eastern language support and other unknown features or functionality at this time.

 

Windows Phone 8 is the next step - codenamed "Apollo" and due in late 2012.
