XDA, always a step ahead, eh? Today, WPCentral reported about Microsoft employees receiving Mango RTM build which triggered a thread in XDA and user longshot442 did a noble act of posting download link to necessary files required to upgrade to Mango build. More after the break.
Windows Phone Mango has been one of the hottest topics in rumor land. Mango went into RTM a few weeks ago and was officially launched in Japan. Now certain rumors are hinting at a release in the IFA extravaganza in Berlin, that is between 1st and 7th September.
IFA is a consumer electronics show, or a one-stop spot for all things tech. Pocketlint has claimed that Microsoft is planning to release its most anticipated update at the extravaganza, providing it a large audience for the operating system and the handsets by various OEMs. Rumors of devices and sightings of higher numbered Mango builds are definitely playing it nice with this release date. The Nokia device however is said to launch at Nokia’s own event in October.
It seems that Mango will only be unveiled at IFA, with the actual updates happening a week or so after the announcement. The update is said to be a gradual one, perhaps like the NoDo one. The update will probably hit phones not tied to any carrier and will be soon followed by the others. This September definitely looks exciting and I don’t think many (except Google and Apple) will be singing ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ (song by Green Day).
Update: Joe Belfiore calls it a rumor. We never said it was official, Joe
