Rumor: Huge update dated for fall codenamed â€œMangoâ€December 15, 2010 No Comments
A huge rumor started making its rounds earlier today.Â WordÂ is spreading that a huge update is coming to Windows Phone 7 later this year codenamed “Mango”. Unlike the 2 small updates coming to us in January and February. Mango is supposed to be a big update which brings usÂ featureslike HTML5 & Silverlight (Silverlight already is theÂ main development platform for Windows Phone 7 devices, butÂ there is noÂ Silverlight browser plug-in yet).Â The update MangoÂ is getting measuredÂ up asÂ an update which will makeÂ the OS feelÂ as if we were usingÂ a WP7.5 device. I am very excited to hear newsÂ regardingÂ updates as it reassures me that Microsoft is fully invested in their mobile platform.
The rumor also suggests that Windows Phone 8 will be released late 2012.
