Microsoft has announced that it will be making the latest version of
Windows Phone, Windows Phone 7.5 available to ‘nearly everyone’, and
update notifications should start to roll out to Windows Phone handsets.
Microsoft has said they are also still working with specific mobile
carriers like Orange in Europe to resolve a few technical issues, and
once those issues are resolved the updates should start rolling out.
Hello everyone. When we kicked off the global rollout of Windows
Phone 7.5, I told you we planned to balance quality with speed. And for
three weeks we’ve been watching quality while sending update notices to a
growing fraction of phones.
It’s gone well. So today we’re fully opening the spigot —slightly
ahead of schedule—and making Mango available to nearly everyone in the
current delivery pool (see Where’s My Phone Update? for the details).
You can find out more information about the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update over at the Windows Phone Blog.
