When’s Mango Going To Get Here?

Is Windows Phone 7.5 Mango nearly upon us? Some developers think so, and reports have been circulating about instructions from on-high that hint at Mango distribution in what’s possibly the very near future.

An anonymous source contacted WPCentral to inform the site about some e-mails he has received from both Microsoft and the unnamed Windows Phone manufacturer whose hardware he had been testing. According to him, the message asks users of the device to back-track to an earlier pre-Mango test version of the phone’s software, so that once Microsoft could see how the devices would perform trying to retrieve their updates from its servers.

Granted, such a request doesn’t directly signal an imminent public release, but it’s definitely the kind of thing that would be in the stages leading up to it. Some people are talking about a release tomorrow, or by the end of the week; we’re not sure just when the ball will drop, but it really is looking to be quite soon.
