Developers to get Mango prior to release

Joe Belfiore, Vice President of the Windows Phone Program Management, has tweeted today that Microsoft is looking into releasing Mango early to the developers before end users receive the update later this fall. This would make sense with giving developers an opportunity to update their applications to take advantage of the new 1500 APIs, as well as giving them an early preview on what's to offer and how they can further improve the user experience their end.

However, nothing has been finalized as of yet, but Brandon Watson did mention back at MIX that developers would possibly get the chance to receive Mango before it gets rolled out. Here's hoping.
