In the latest WindowsPhoneDev Podcast they dropped a bit of info – Mango has been released to manufacturers and is in carrier testing. This is build 7710 which is a newer build than the beta build distributed to developers. It is now beginning carrier and OEM testing which means we’re not too far away from getting Mango in our hands!

Don’t screw us carriers. And while we’re at it, Nokia, ready to drop a device, like now?

    Seriously David, have you ever seen AT&T get any OEM update and the release be “not too far away?”

  2. And why wouldn’t they push a build to us (I love saying that now) developers? I’d expect them to push a build of the RTM to dev’s soon. Once again my speculation. But if they want us to get our apps ready to submit starting August we’ll need that new SDK.

  3. Doug Smith is right here, AT&T always takes months and months to test the update, take 7392 update for example, I don’t understand what is there to test that build for more than 2 months. Even though Microsoft released it to Carriers, I don’t expect my AT&T Samsung Focus getting Mango’ed this year.

  4. T-Mo was pretty good about the last update, hopefully they continue that. I’d LOVE to get this before september

    They’re not testing anything. It doesn’t take that long to test a simple security update, when you only have two or three Windows Phone devices, especially considering Microsoft already tested them. They’re screwing their customers, trying to get them to buy new phones. That’s the same goal when they hold back Android updates.

  6. Yeah good stuff David, please continue to make damn sure to use pictures somehow related to the mango fruit or to Chris Katan’s SNL character Mango otherwise this whole thing will fall apart. Oh thank God for the ability to blog the article image, otherwise how the hell would we be able to stay up to date on Mango damnit. Good stuff.
