Lumia 900 users on Rogers reporting Tango update coming through
While those of us on AT&T in the States are evidently sitting out the great Tango push for June, those up north are having better luck.
We've had two reports from users on Rogers that Windows Phone 7.5 Tango aka 8773 is now being pushed for their Lumia 900s. The update comes in two parts with 8112 going first followed by 8773, meaning users will have enough time to catch their favorite show while their phone backs up and applies the two updates.
Windows Phone 7.5 Tango only brings some minor fixes to the OS with some MMS enhancements but the Nokia firmware is the real juicy stuff. Bringing WiFi tethering and "flip to silence" for incoming calls, the firmware should go a long way in making sure users' phones are running in tip top shape.
For those not wishing to wait, they can take matters into their own hands and force the update manually. Otherwise, if you're on Nokia with an 800 or 710, you can check your device status here.
Thanks, Derek N. and Erik, for the tips and images

1.Poor response to light brightness doesn't adjust, 2.loses data connection when on 3G.
3. Whatsapp doesn't deliver messages when on 3G.
4. The 3 touch buttons light is visible on the screen with dark background like they are street lights around the bezel or in situations when app is loading try it in a dark room.
4. Poor dictionary prediction. All in all touch is not as sensitive as HTC trophy
This is where I believe patience enters into the game. As an earlier post points out updates for unlocked devices are pushed out by Nokia.
...Patience my prescious... :)
Firmware revision number: 2175.1002.8107.12084
We should get it once it is fully underway :)
Canceled the update and restarted it, took half an hour!
