Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" update is shipping


David Meego - Click for blog homepageYesterday saw the worldwide release of Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” [Build 7.10 (7720)]. Microsoft has started the roll out of the Windows Phone 7.5 update to more than 98 percent of existing Windows Phone customers.

This is a simultaneous, coordinated, global update that cuts across carriers, phone models, and countries. While the roll-out includes most of the carriers and handsets, they’re not making the update available to everyone at once. As a result, it may be a few weeks before an update message for Windows Phone 7.5 appears for some of you. Check Where’s My Phone Update? for the latest global delivery status info and Update Central for help and how-to guidance.

Thanks to all those involved for this fantastic release.

    Any recommendation for a good Win 7 phone ? Thinking of picking up Samsung Focus … my droid's poor battery life is killing me.

  3. Hi Jivtesh

    I have a HTC Mozart and am happy (except I want more storage and the microSD card is internal). For some reason the version sold in Australia is 8G when in USA it is 16G.

    I have heard good feedback on the Samsung Focus.  

    Maybe you should ask on a Windows Phone forum.
