Deutsche Telekom to send out Mango update to HTC's Windows Phone units as soon as tomorrow
The Windows Phone Mango update is a massive bit of work with over 500 changes made to the original OS. But now, the time is here for users of smartphones flavored by Microsoft's mobile OS to enjoy the fruits (no pun intended) of the company's labor. According to a German web site called Chip Online, HTC branded Windows phones will be the first to receive the update possibly as soon as tomorrow. Versions of Windows Phone 7 handsets made by Samsung are to receive the Mango update later, according to the site which claims to have received the news from a Deutsche Telekom source.

Chip Online states that all Windows Phone 7 devices will eventually receive the Mango update, but the date varies between manufacturers to make sure that there are no problems between the software and hardware so that everything goes off without a hitch. Also, no information is available on when to expect the Mango updates for LG and Dell devices.

It's strange how every one is reporting that HTC will be first, Samsung will be after that (damn) but no body is talking about Dell or LG ... hmm

Well there is way more htc and samsung phones that were bought then lg. I myself do not now any body that owns a Dell or lg phone let alone an lg or Dell windows phone, phone. It's not saying much but then again for arguments sake I don't know any body that owns a windows phone, phone. That in itself is kinda sad considering I think that windows phone has more going for it and actually is even better than apple os. I think android is the best out there right now(I am typing this on an ipad2 and love it.) what apple has I believ that keeps it rolling is the fact that it's only has it's os on one phone pretty much that goes into all kinds of accessories and the app store has the best quality and quanity of apps out right now. If you think about it everything that has mobile phone support usually has an app or gadget connected with apple because it only has to build one thing for one style of hone that has so many users.

Well you are right for everything you said, and I am on board with you on that Apple had the market and everyone jumped on for the ride ... meaning apps accessories and basically everything. For Apple is pretty easy to update their phones they have only one hardware so they can push the update without worries, unlike WP7 or Android ... they have many different phones and it's quite difficult to push one update, and the accessories are quite missing. But that was not my point :) My point is that If the company sells LG or Dell along with Samsung and HTC they must state when will the update come for the other hardware ... it's not fair for those who bought LG or Dell. I think it's only fare... :)

This is good, at least Microsoft makes sure that no company gets left behind in terms of updates. WP7 is actually incredibly smooth and stable, the animations are all very pleasant and lag is rare. Xbox gaming is cool but won't be fully made use of until phones ship with sliding gamepads and S4 chips. Wish you luck Microsoft.
