Nokia recently announced their new range of Window Phone 7.5 devices at the Nokia World 2011 event. The show stopper was the Nokia Lumia 800, a beautifully designed Nokia N9 running on Windows Phone Mango. The Windows Phone 7.5 mobile OS from Microsoft has been adopted by Nokia, Samsung, HTC and few other companies, but it’s still not widely used. However, this doesn’t mean that people aren’t using the OS, many are and we actually dig the Metro UI and simplicity of it.
Recently, Microsoft officially started rolling out the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango updates to the LG Optimus 7 and the Samsung Omnia 7 phones worldwide. However, there are a lot of other phones out there from HTC, Samsung etc that are still running on WP7 and are waiting for the update. Well, your wait is finally over, because soon you too will be receiving the update for your devices. Microsoft has promised that all and any mobile device running Windows Phone 7 is compatible and will receive the latest update. Eric Hautala, General Manager, Customer Experience Engineering of Windows Phone 7 stated;
In addition, we’re now delivering Mango to 100 percent of eligible phones around the world, regardless of carrier.
The updates have already started being delivered for the Samsung Omnia 7, and soon enough every other Windows Phone 7 device will be treated the same way. You will receive a notification on your mobile device asking for permission to download and install the latest Mango update. Remember to backup your device before the process. Also, you may receive another notification for an upgrade in firmware, but this is only applicable for devices on certain carriers, so don’t panic if you don’t get it.
The latest Mango update will bring a lot of new features to your mobile device including better copy-paste, music player and other bug fixes and new customization settings. So be sure to upgrade when you do get the notification. You can go check this site for more information on when you’ll be receiving those updates.
