If recent reports from Microsoft are to be believed then the company is ready to launch its much awaited OS update codenamed Mango as soon as 1 September.

According to tech website Uber Gizmo (opens in new tab), Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft Corporation is preparing to roll out the software update to its not so successful Windows Phone 7 Operating System much ahead of time estimated.

Meanwhile, PocketLint (opens in new tab) has reported two trusted sources close to the Microsoft team have revealed that the Mango software update to Windows Phone 7, which was earlier announced to be released in autumn by chief executive officer Steve Ballmer will see light early next month.

The Release To Manufacturers (RTM) version of the update has already been shipped to developers and is being run on several devices for trial purposes.

“The launch date, we now understand, has been chosen due to its importance in tieing in with IFA, Europe's largest consumer electronics show in Berlin, and means that companies like Samsung, Acer, ZTE and LG will be able to show off new devices with Mango installed.” PocketLint wrote.

Along this line, Nokia Corporation is also ready to release its Smartphones based on Windows phone 7 in October clearly indicating that the holiday season may prove to be really successful for Microsoft.
