Windows Phone "Mango" includes a lot of cool, exciting new features that users will be showing to all of their friends. Of course, there are some features so behind the scenes that users will never really be aware of them—but developers will. One such new feature is the addition of "SQL Compact" to the Windows Phone Platform.
