Windows Phone “Mango” has been Released to Manufacturing!

| July 27, 2011 | 2 Comments

On July 26th, the Windows Phone development team officially signed off on the release to
manufacturing (RTM) build of “Mango,” which is the latest version of the Windows Phone
operating system.  We now hand over the code to OEMs to tailor and optimize the OS for their phones.  After that, our Mobile Operator partners will do the same in order to prepare the phones for their wireless networks.

This is an amazing milestone for the Windows Phone team and Microsoft.  With hundreds of new features including the world’s fastest mobile HTML5 web browser, Windows Phone “Mango” promises to make a huge impact in the mobile + wireless space this fall.  This “splash” is made even bigger around the world as we expand our Windows Phone language support to include Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian (Bokmål), Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish.

Congratulations to the Windows Phone engineering team for building the best phone operating system in the world!
