Windows Phone 7.5 Mango to be released on Sept 15th?

New reports are suggesting that Windows Phone 7.5 Mango will be released on September 15th. Mango promises over 500 new features for the Windows Phone platform and is eagerly anticipated by many Windows Phone users.

The guys over at wpcentral are reporting that the mango update will be delivered on September 15th. This information apparently comes from a “well known commercial software developer.” Another report suggests that HTC has already received the RTM build and is working hard to fix things up before releasing it for HTC Windows Phone handsets. HTC also revealed that the release date was in September but would not clarify exactly when.

Mango was recently released to manufacturing and handset makers are working hard to make sure necessary patches are in place so things are ready to go.

‘Mango’ will feature an updated user interface with the intentions of “making it easier for the user to launch, to search, to find, to buy and to install” apps. The update will also feature a 25% improvement in memory efficiency and support for deep links into application content. We will also see a feature called Live Agents as well as better multitasking. IE9 will also be making an appearance in the update.
