Microsoft might begin rolling out its highly awaited Windows Phone 7.5 a.k.a Mango on September 15th.
According to an article (opens in new tab) on Live Side, the Windows Phone Dev Podcast team announced that the company might start rolling out the update this week.
The company did not say whether it would be launching the update for unlocked devices or if the roll out would be started by the carriers. Carriers typically take their own sweet time in rolling out updates for devices on their networks.
“Next week is going to be a big week for Windows Phone. We have been told by various sources that Mango will be dropping, and the final tools will be dropping for developers. So that would be interesting and something to look forward to,” the team said during the podcast.
They have been right about the Mango screenshots and the release of the beta version for developers in the past, therefore, this revelation should be taken seriously.
Several WP7 software makers and device makers like HTC have hinted that the Mango update would be launched sometime in September, so the Windows Phone Dev Podcast time might have hit the bulls eye yet again.
