Windows Phone Mango Released to Manufacturing

Windows Phone Mango Released to ManufacturingFollowing some eager rumours earlier this week we can now confirm that the new version of Windows Phone – “Mango” – is now ready for manufacturers. The “RTM” (Release to Manufacturing) build has been handed over and we now await news of updates and new devices this Autumn.

Terry Myerson, Corporate Vice President, Windows Phone Engineering, has stated…

This marks the point in the development process where we hand code to our handset and mobile operator partners to optimize Mango for their specific phone and network configurations. Here on the Windows Phone team, we now turn to preparing for the update process. The Mango update for current Windows Phone handsets will be ready this fall, and of course will come pre-installed on new Windows Phones.

Internet Explorer 9, multitasking and threaded messaging are just some of the improvements on the new OS.
