Microsoft employees already being treated to Mango, according to rumors
Besides the privilege of being employed by one of the most successful companies in the world, members of team Microsoft may have yet another perk to make them feel special. Even though the WP7 Mango update is not expected to start rolling out Stateside until next month, Microsoft employees can already have a finalized version of the software (build 7720, to be exact) installed on their smartphones, according to a rumor that we just stumbled upon.

Word comes from the guys over at wpcentral, which were told that those willing to take Mango for a spin can simply bring their handset over to the Device Lab on the Bellevue campus and have the software manually installed on their device. Sure, this information still belongs to the realm of rumors right now, but if the tip turns out to be on the right track, something tells us that a pretty big cue is forming in front of Microsoft's labs right now.

With its 500+ new features and improvements, the Mango update is anticipated by pretty much all Windows Phone 7 enthusiasts out there and it is only a matter of time until it is pushed to the public. Since the first device to pack WP7 Mango out of the box is already out, it is pretty certain that the guys at Microsoft's camp have a final version of the software on their hands, which makes the rumor sound pretty credible.

If anyone has been lucky enough to be among the first to try the final version of the Mango update first hand, feel free to brag about it by leaving a comment below.
