The latest version of Windows Phone, Mango, has been released for manufacturers and operators to optimize it as per their requirements. In simple terms, it’s now onto the operators and manufacturers to do their part as soon as they can, and the update to existing Windows Phones will reach this fall.
Earlier this morning, the Windows Phone development team officially signed off on the release to manufacturing (RTM) build of “Mango” – the latest version of the Windows Phone operating system. This marks the point in the development process where we hand code to our handset and mobile operator partners to optimize Mango for their specific phone and network configurations. Here on the Windows Phone team, we now turn to preparing for the update process. The Mango update for current Windows Phone handsets will be ready this fall, and of course will come pre-installed on new Windows Phones.
Remember, Nokia’s first Windows Phone(s) will come with Mango pre-installed, and that’s when the game begins. Roll on, Windows Phone!
