Windows Phone Mango update now available to nearly all WP users

The Mango update of the Windows Phone operating system has gone well enough that Microsoft is making Mango available to nearly all Windows Phone users slightly ahead of schedule, according to the official Windows Phone blog.

“We’re excited most of our customers now have access to all the new features in Windows Phone 7.5,” Eric Hautala, general manager of customer experience engineering, wrote in the blog. “But we know there’s still work to do.”

Hautala wrote that updates for a few phones are still undergoing carrier tests, and that delivery of Windows Phone 7.5, as Mango is officially called, will be expedited once those tests are done.

There was no word on the blog about problems some Mango users have reported experiencing, such as randomly disappearing touchscreen keyboards or random crashes while playing songs via Zune.

Microsoft has issued this statement in response to both the keyboard and Zune problems: “Customer support is working with the individuals reporting changes to their experience. We are investigating these reports to determine the root cause of any issues users are having.”

The Windows Phone blog, in another entry, also has a look at AT&T’s lineup of Windows Phones handsets featuring Mango: the HTC Titan, Samsung Focus S and Samsung Focus Flash. They were introduced Wednesday by Windows Phone President Andy Lees at the All Things D Asia conference.
