It’s Day 2 of Microsoft’s Mix ‘11 conference. A bunch of us Microsoft bloggers are doing our usual group blog thing, starting at 9 a.m. PT today, April 13.

The keynoters today include Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows Phone, and Scott Guthrie, Corporate .NET Developer Platform. Word is we're going to hear more about "Mango," the next major operating-system update for Windows Phone; the Silverlight 5 beta; and maybe even a beta of the coming Kinect software development kit (SDK) for hobbyists that Microsoft announced earlier this year.

Speaking of Windows Phone, Microsoft provided its latest update about the "NoDo" update on April 13, and the news isn't good. AT&T is still testing the February and March updates and isn't allowing them to be pushed yet.

Join us via CoverItLive and comment along with us as the keynote is streamed live this morning:

Topics: Browser, Microsoft, Mobility, Operating Systems, Software, Telcos, Windows
