Now that I’ve used a Windows Phone and therefore have the right to pretend to care about this stuff, I’m just curious where you all weigh on a little something. By when will Mango, which by all accounts is the impending messiah of WP, be running on at least two thirds of all Windows Phones actively used by consumers globally?
Example responses: Later this year (lol), mid next year, end of 2012, 2013, later than that, or, my favorite, never.
Optimists, please note if you’re willing to put money where your bullshit is. Hell, I’ll even let you factor out "Walshied" devices from the pool.
If you ask me they should just call the whole thing off. WP is so sweet the way it is.
Sell through on new devices-Oct/Nov. Released to unbranded devices-Nov/Dec. Rollout to branded devices-Jan/Mar. AT&T devices-Mar/Apr. No bets. May need the cash to buy a Nokia in November.
I’m willing to bet that it’s official release date announcement going to be squarely poised against the release of iOS 5.

I think October is the real over/under date. They learned from this rollout and they won’t let it get fucked up again. But I think October is the one year anniversary and I think that’s their goal. That is their infamous ‘holiday’ season.
I say Feb of 2012. Around mobile world conference 2012.
$50 on by end of 2011. What, you thought I was scared? Grew up around and playing card sharks.
Sold Murani, we have a wager. Fifty bucks on 2/3rds of active WP devices by year’s end.
May you not lose by such an embarrassing degree as David K did (he lost to me like a little naive pussy ass Microsoft teet-suckling bitch).
