Windows Phone 7 ‘Mango’ RTM

Microsoft has announced it has finalised the code to the Windows Phone 7 update known as ‘Mango’, along with releasing it to manufactures to be used on mobile phones that they are selling.

The Windows Phone Development team have officially signed off the release of the ‘Mango’ build, which is the latest version of the mobile phone operating system that brings with it a number of updates to the platform.

Being Released To Manufacturing (RTM) is an important milestone in the development of software, as it means that it's one step closer to actually being seen by the public.

Windows Phone 7 ‘Mango’ has now been handed over to handset companies and also mobile operating partners, to optimise the OS update for a specific phone and network configurations and ready for a deployment in the Autumn.

One Mobile Ring attended the launch event for Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 'Mango' update, where we caught on video a hands-on walkthrough of the OS here, where we also saw Microsoft once again at the start of July and published a hands-on set of pictures here of the new platform and a better hands-on video, seen here.
