Shawn makes the Mango Marketing Madness a little less maddening (aka Windows Phone Mango version branding cheat sheet)
"In finishing up my new Windows Phone book, I had to deal with the confusing version problem. There are three version numbers to be aware of:

- Windows Phone OS 7.1
- Windows Phone SDK 7.1
So what is Mango? It comes down to this:
Seems much more complicated than it needs to be, doesn't it? 7.1, 7.5, OS vs Marketing... Why does it seem Microsoft has such an issue with versioning/branding? So we "really" need two different version brandings for Mango? Really? sigh...
