Microsoft releases to manufacturing its Mango Phone operating system

On July 26, Microsoft made it official: The “Mango” operating system update for Windows Phones has RTM’d (released to manfucturing).

From a note on the Windows Phone blog:

“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.”

I’m prepared to give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt and am counting on Windows Phone team members to have put the squeeze on their mobile operator partners. Hopefully, Microsoft has “convinced” them to sign off on the testing process quicker than they did with “NoDo,” the first Windows Phone operating system update that took months to get into users’ hands.
