If you have a Windows Phone, you no doubt have been asking yourself this question. Well today, we have an answer…sort of. It has been rumored over the last few days that Mango would be released today. According to Microsoft’s Where’s My Phone Update? website (updated 9/27) Mango is in the
scheduling “delivering update” phase for most all United State’s carriers. In 10 days or less it should be out for delivery. It seems it’s not it is officially Mango day. , but you can smell it coming can’t you? a My Samsung Focus that was running the beta Mango is now updating to the final version. My other Samsung Focus (v1.3) is still waiting for the update.
In addition to the Mango news, Microsoft has also released its Windows Phone Web Marketplace. You can now browse and buy apps without a phone or Zune client. This is great as it’s been nearly impossible to do this before without using some other website that is filled with ads.
Finally, Brandon Watson, from the Windows Phone team, announced this little nugget via Twitter.
Got a case of the Mondays? Here’s a fix:
#wpdev folks will roll forward to Mango RTM, & will *not* roll back to NoDo. Thank you engineering.
Indeed, THANK YOU EGINEERING! Until this post it was believed that folks who were on the Mango beta, like myself, would have to revert back to a NoDo backup before updating to production Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). I get to keep my spot in Angry Birds!
This is an exciting time, and so far it appears that Microsoft and it’s partners have corrected most of the mistakes we saw during the NoDo update. Get excited world, for those of you who haven’t yet used or seen Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango), it will knock your socks off. In the coming days I’ll start posting some of my favorite features.
