Microsoft Ahead of Schedule with Windows Phone 7 Mango

Most of the time, when a company is scheduled to release a software update or new version, we get the news that the update or release has been re-scheduled for a later date. This time we have to give Microsoft the credit they deserve--they have not only beat the schedule, but Mango is now in the hands of manufacturers.

Microsoft’s director of Mobile Business (in Sweden), Peter Wissinger, announced this weekend that "Now it’s up to our manufacturing partners to release Mango to our customers. Microsoft has delivered complete Mango earlier than planned to the manufacturers. Feels good now." Talk around the water cooler predicted that Mango would be released some time in September, however, according to Microsoft, as of August 20th, it's ready for prime time.
