Last week we were really pleased to announce that partnering closely with Microsoft meant we could start rolling out the Windows Phone 7.5 OS update, codenamed Mango. And what an update it is!
Windows Phone 7.5 is the first major release since Windows Phone 7 launched less than a year ago. Mango offers hundreds of new features and experiences designed to build on the phone’s intuitive, “people-first” foundation – multitasking, more integrated apps, primo mobile web browsing, and powerful and personalized tools, like integrated social networking and conversation threads, for connecting with the people in our lives.
Many people have already advised that they have got the update but it is a gradual roll out so you just need to keep an eye on your device which will advise you when the update is ready to download.
Microsoft will gradually ramp up delivery so that the update will be broadly available to most existing Windows Phone customers by the end of October.
With such a feature packed update it is pretty hard to cover them all in a blog post so here are some of our top picks that will come to you, free of charge of course, with the Mango update.
The Mango update can be downloaded for free by synchronising your phone with Microsoft’s Zune software on a PC. Microsoft will make it available to customers progressively over the coming weeks.
