AT&T starting Mango updates on Sept. 27th
We heard yesterday straight from Microsoft that the Windows Phone Mango update will be hitting US carriers in the next one to two weeks, and now we're getting details on the rollout planned by AT&T. The Mango update will start for AT&T users on September 27th, but unfortunately it's not all good news, especially if you're a Samsung Focus or HTC HD7S user. 

If you're an AT&T customer using either the HTC Surround or LG Quantum, the update will be made available for you on September 27th. If you're an HTC HD7S user, you'll have to wait until early to mid October for your update. And, if you're a Samsung Focus user, things get a bit tricky, although you may already be used to that given the mess that was the NoDo update

If you have a Samsung Focus with hardware revision 1.3, you're in luck and you'll get the Mango update on the 27th. However, if you're a Focus user with hardware revision 1.4, you'll have to wait until the end of October at the earliest to get your update. 

Of course, once the day comes, the update itself should be pretty easy. All you have to do is make sure you have the newest version of the Zune software, and plug in your phone. Until then, stay strong.

Check under the battery cover. It should have the version on the label there. Version 1.3 is what the vast majority of Focus' have. Samsung had to use a different processor in some Focus models due to shortages. 1.4 has the other processor.

AT&T wants to be the premier WP carrier. This is the way to do it. The best selection of devices, and Mango first. They have the chance to build a very loyal consumer base with WP. Happy for all these owners. Hope it goes smooth.

Yea you would think Verizon would recognize the value of being ahead of the trend, especially after their success with Android. Oh well, I just hope we get the update in the next couple of weeks from Big Red.

It will be interesting to see when and how this update works with my unlocked Omnia 7 running on AT&T. Here's to hoping it performs flawlessly whenever the time comes.
