Microsoft To Release New Phone OS Code Named “MANGO”

Microsoft is prepping to begin pushing out the Mango update to Windows Phone, possibly as soon as September 27.

In prepration for the rollout of the “Mango” operating system update for existing Windows Phone users which is expected this week — mostly likely starting on September 27 — Microsoft officials are laying the groundwork.

The Windows Phone NZ site broke the news on September 26 that Microsoft apparently would allow developers working with the near-final Mango bits to move straight to the Mango release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system. Microsoft officials confirmed the news — via a Tweet — a number of hours later.
