AT&T may be rolling out Mango, the update that will dramatically improve Windows Phone 7, on September 27 according to leaked information. This definitely jives with the details that we reported on yesterday, wherein we said the update is coming within the next week or two. The info was contained within a series of e-mails between AT&T employees, and the exchange was obtained by WPCentral. The Mango update was promised by Microsoft to release this fall, so it looks like the update might be right on time.
Starting September 27, according to the e-mail conversations, the following AT&T WP7 devices will receive the Mango update:
- HTC Surround (SKU 65212)
- LG Quantum (SKU 65205)
- Samsung Focus (SKU 65203)
The HTC HD7S looks like it will be scheduled for an update in “early to mid October,” so there isn’t a huge delay in that if the September 27 date is correct. Dell Venue Pro users, for the few of you that exist, there is no news on that front. We’d imagine that Dell would be handling the update for its own devices.
