For the past couple of days we’ve been hearing rumors and reports about Microsoft announcing Windows Phone’s next update, codenamed Mango, on September 15. OEMs and carriers definitely have a higher-than-normal level of Windows Phone activity so there might be some fire here as we can all see the smoke.
The latest bit on the Mango launch comes from Microsoft TechDays Taiwan 2011 where the audience has been told that the Redmond platform refresh will see the light of day on September 16. Not sure how wave-one devices will get the updates though, or if the updates will be actually ready for that September 16 date, but the buzz is really there. We expect official wording from Microsoft either later today or tomorrow if there’s any truth to the rumors.
