Internet Explorer 9 launching today. IE9 Mobile to probably be shown again

I would like to remind you that the final version of Internet Explorer 9 is officially launching later today and that Microsoft is going to have a dedicated launch event in Austin Texas during SXSW which you can watch live here. Lot’s of members of the Windows Phone 7 team are also present there and if you are lucky enough you’ll even be able to see the IE9 Mobile (part of Mango) run on an actual device. Joe Marini , Principal Program Manager at Microsoft for the Web platform on Windows Phone, is running around with a Mango powered Windows Phone 7 handset:

I think that it’s safe to assume that we are going to see a short demo of IE9 Mobile during tonight’s event similar to the one shown at MWC (hopefully without the “HD video streaming lie;-) ).

Update: Unfortunately the whole presentation didn’t show or bring anything new to the table and was just a rehash of all the previous IE9 stuff we saw since last March (and not a single mention of Windows Phone). Next month’s MIX11 is were things will be interesting, so stay tuned.
