In Mango, you can just pull out your phone and within seconds get the name of the song or artist and also a link to the Zune music store so you can download or buy it."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1307888977.usr14226.jpg" /></em></p><p>Cool stuff - the upcoming Mango update will feature Music Search, which promises to put a name to that tune which you just can't quite remember the name of. The best part is the description of how its done, and why Music Search can potentially return results almost instantaneously - sound is monitored continuously, and "fingerprinted" rather than sampled, which promises to cut data use substantially.</p>

Is not this something like "Shamaz' or "Shazam"? I am not exactly sure about the name of the app but a friend of mine showed me this program which seems able to recognizing the music being played and retrieve the name and other information about the song.

If it is something similar it would be indeed very useful.

All these great Mango updates!
Does anyone know if Mango will include speed dial and ringtones?
I can't believe that I cant assign single digit speed dial to my favorite contacts as well as not being able to use my song library as ringtones!!!
Anyone know?
