Mango Available for Developers Today

June 29, 2011 2 Comments

Just last week, many were left disappointed that developers would not be receiving Mango after a lot of speculation that they would. Brandon Watson, Sr. Director, Windows Phone, just posted on the Windows Team Blog stating that Microsoft was distributing Mango today as part of an early access program for developers. Here’s how to get it

  • Download the Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta 2 – You will need to update your developer tools to update your phone
    and to deploy your apps, so run…get them now.
  • Read the instructions before updating – These are very important
    steps which you need to follow to the letter. We’re committed to supporting our developer community with such an early access program, so if you have questions, start with the forums, which we are monitoring.

This release allows developers to begin developing and testing applications the are compatible with the Mango update due this Fall.

    The best day ever, I am really pleased that Microsoft has let people do this as it would have caused problems creating games and apps using only the new emulator.  I’m a student programmer and updated my phone last night (took several hours) but it worked perfectly, and it runs so smoothly.
