Windows Phone ‘Mango’ released to vendors
Microsoft confirmed on its Windows Team Blog on Monday that it has released the RTM build of Windows Phone “Mango” to manufacturing partners.
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,” explained Microsoft’s Windows Phone corporate vice president Terry Myerson.
Microsoft has said Mango will deliver more than 500 new features to the Windows Phone platform, including Internet Explorer 9 and deeper social network integration. Mango is also set to release sometime in August to all existing devices.
Microsoft also plans to release Nokia, HTC, LG, Samsung, Dell, Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE branded Windows Phone ‘Mango’ devices.
