It’s official: Mango in a couple of weeks (or less)

It’s official: Mango in a couple of weeks (or less)There’s a whole host of OS updates – Mango, iOS 5, Ice Cream Sandwich, Symbian Belle and Bada 2.0 – on the horizon, and Microsoft is right at the front of the queue.

After weeks and weeks of speculation, Microsoft has officially confirmed that Mango – first unveiled back in May and promising 500+ new features – will roll out in a week or two.

Writing on the appropriately named Windows Blog (it does what it says on the tin), Eric Hautala says: “For months, we and dozens of our partner companies have been laying the groundwork for the Windows Phone 7.5 update—and making solid progress. As a result, we now expect to start rolling it out in the next week or two.”

There’s good news for those who’ve backed Windows Phone 7 from the start, as “every Windows Phone” will get the Mango treatment.

Eric warns that folk should “steer clear of bootleg updates and homebrew tools” and stick with the one true path, namely Zune.

Anyone rocking Windows Phone 7? Let us know what you think once you’ve been Mangofied. And pay no mind to Jan's WP7 mocking.

I never mocked WP7. Not ever. It's well past mockery :p

Nah, seriously - I said numerous times that it has its strengths. I can't recall why I said that, but hey...

Maybe Mango will make it a reall smart OS?
And anyway, winmo 6.5 was underrated.

While it still has that "dog" looking Metro UI, I won't be going anywhere near it. I tried to like Metro with Launcher7 on my SGS2, but I just don't, sorry MS.
