Microsoft to start Windows Phone ‘Mango’ Update rollout soon

As announced in earlier posts, the much anticipated Windows Phone 7.5 update ‘Mango’ is been expected this fall. Microsoft has now confirmed that the update will start rolling out in the next week or two.

Microsoft at this time is cautioning Windows Phone users against installing unofficial or leaked copies of Windows Phone software.

According to the Windows Team blog post;

During the official Windows Phone 7.5 update process, every Windows Phone will also receive software from the handset manufacturer. This matched and paired firmware has been painstakingly tuned so your phone—and apps—work with all the new features of Windows Phone 7.5. Since your phone requires the proper firmware to function as designed, my advice is simple: steer clear of bootleg updates and homebrew tools.

When an update is available, a message appears on your phone letting you know. To check update status for your phone, choose your location: United States or International. The table will be refreshed periodically to reflect the worldwide rollout status.

Finally, it’s recommended that WP7 users get the new versions of both the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac and the Zune software for PCs, which offers support for the upcoming Windows Phone ‘Mango’ update.
