Yes, Mango’s sort-of here; if you’re buying your phone in Japan, installing a leaked update, or upgrading in Taiwan, then yeah, Mango season has begun. As far as Microsoft is concerned, though, Mango isn’t on until it says “go”, and all of us trying to figure out just when that will be need to chillax and wait for fall.

Microsoft’s been saying “fall” for Mango’s release, and it’s sticking to its guns. The company’s VP of Windows Phone, Joe Belfiore, tweeted this evening in response to all the rumors surrounding the upgrade’s release and the recent developments in Taiwan, reminding us that “fall” means “fall”, and we’ve got a good week’s wait left on our hands.

We’ll admit that the urge to follow-down all the rumors we hear, looking for where the truth lies, can get a bit manic at times, and lead one to put more faith in optimistic speculation rather than the unequivocal statements from the companies involved, but you have to admit, Joe, Microsoft isn’t making things any easier with this soft launch of very limited Mango availability; that’s just fodder for rumors.
