Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Mango Rolled Out to Smartphone Makers

July 27, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Mango is ripe for the smartphone bite! Manufacturers can now look forward to working on the new Windows Phone 7 Mango, with Microsoft rolling out the platform. Smart device makers can now start customizing Mango for their upcoming handsets.

The version build has been signed as RTM (release to manufacturing) by bosses at Microsoft and that makes it pretty sure that we will get to play with the first lot of Mango smartphones in a few months’ time.

Microsoft has said that this RTM marks a very important milestone in the development process where the Mango code has been passed on to the company’s handset and mobile operator partners so as to optimize Mango as per their requirement.

As you already know, Microsoft had lifted the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Mango during May this year promising a slew of astounding features. We hear the company has thrown in new aspects that will help create a smarter and easier approach to communications and apps. We are sure Mango will be an exciting web experience.

Among the features that are being touted as unique are the new email Conversation View that will help you participate in long email discussions with my friends and co-workers; Threads that bring together text, IM, and Facebook chat all into one conversation;  App Multitasking and Internet Explorer 9 for fast web browsing and support for new HTML 5 web sites.

Microsoft will also be bringing in an update for current Windows Phone handsets. This, we expect, to happen by fall.
