Developers Will Not get ‘Mango’ Through UpdateJune 6, 2011 No Comments
Joe Belfiore tweeted recently that they were “working on a plan for DEVELOPERs to be able to get Mango for phones before launch”. This led many to believe that Mango would be distributed to developers in the form of an update to their current device.
AppHub provided a little snippet of information on this matter.
To update Joe’s tweet: We’re working on a plan. Just like last year, when we made developer phones available with the Windows Phone 7 OS, we plan to have developer phones this summer supporting new Mango features like the gyroscope. We don’t have any dates to share just yet, so stay tuned.
So, despite what was thought it seems that developers are instead going to have to get new devices. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see how this is going to work.
