Microsoft to support same IE9 security, privacy features on phone and desktop

Microsoft officials unveiled plans to deliver IE9 Mobile as part of the first “significant” operating system update to Windows Phone 7 in calendar 2011.

Translation: Microsoft will be providing to its partners the “Mango” update (Windows Phone OS 7.X) with an IE 9-based browser this summer, so they can get it to users by fall/holiday 2011.

What does it mean, exactly, that Microsoft will have IE9 on a smartphone? Is this just a slightly updated version of the IE Mobile version that is part of the current generation of Windows Phone 7s (which is actually IE 7 with a few IE 8 features added)?

Microsoft execs say it’s a lot more significant than that. Like the desktop IE9, the IE Mobile 9 version will support HTML5. It also will include a number of other pieces of the IE9 desktop browser.

In a February 14 blog post, IE Corporate Vice President Dean Hachomovitch explained that the IE team has been working with the Windows Phone team “over the last few months” to deliver the “same IE9 browsing engine — the same code, the same standards support, the same hardware acceleration, the same security and privacy protections — on both platforms.
