It's Here! Microsoft Windows Phone sites tout Mango release

For those in the UK, you'll be happy to see this on the Windows Phone site. While we expect some phones to not get the update right away, it sure looks like Microsoft is expecting a big roll out over the next few days for nearly everyone there.

So get ready!

Update: Evidently the whole world is now getting this message. We're okay with making that mistake.

  • ITS COMING!!! I hope to see it will roll out to all phones on the same day I mean all this time for testing you would think they could just push it out for all I mean iOS everyone gets the update the same time... sure its easier since Apple make the devices though.
  • Also they have fewer phone models :P
  • Dansih site shows the same thing. Can't wait to get access to app marketplace :D
  • AU site now shows the new look too. Here's to hoping we'll get Mango soon enough!
  • It´s also on the Spain site.
  • And by "here" Microsoft means in the general vicinity. Here doesn't mean here, but possibly here, maybe over there or there.

  • Here's the reply I got from o2 germany after asking for a confirmation on whether mango would be released today.@o2deo2 Deutschland@maxari14 Wir haben Mango bereits freigegeben. Wann konkret die Verteilung durch Microsoft erfolgt, steht leider noch nicht fest. (CH)English: We've already released Mango. Exactly when its distribution through microsoft happens, hasn't yet been determined.Guess its now all up to microsoft meaning we'll all probably get mango at the same time but one thing is certain, Mango is on its way!! and it's really close!
  • I noticed on the International where's my update page, at the bottom it states... '**Does not include Samsung Omnia 7 models.' Does this mean Omnia 7's wont be updated? Or atleast wont get the update at the same time as everybody else?
