Windows Phone 7 Mango goes RTM

Posted by Patrick Boom on July 27, 2011

OK, so I rarely post stuff likes this, but for this, I will make an exception.

Today, Microsoft officially announced on the Windows Phone 7 Blog that the long awaited update for Windows Phone 7, codenamed ‘Mango’, has reached it’s RTM status. This marks the beginning of the full blown launch world wide for this brand new operating system for mobile devices, next to the startup countries in October and November 2010. This finally means that we can get our hands on devices from Nokia, Samsung and HTC that run in your native language, next to the already supported 5 languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Italian).

I am a Windows Phone 7 user from the start and was immediately impressed by the OS, although I am not completely biassed 😉 But coming from Windows Mobile 6.5, it was a clear change of direction and so far, for the better. It works smoother, faster and better than Windows Mobile ever did and a clear differentiator from Android and iOS.

I hereby congratulate the Windows Phone 7 team in reaching the RTM well in time, so we can enjoy the new features this fall, as well as new devices and better apps. With the Marketplace growing at around 1200 apps a week, Windows Phone 7 matures. Keep up the good work!
