Microsoft is literally sending mangoes to those attending their upcoming event
At this point, there is no hiding the fact that Microsoft will be showing off all the cool new features expected out of their upcoming “Mango” update for Windows Phone 7, and of course, they’re hosting an event on the 24th to show it to the world. For the people who managed to get a special invite from Microsoft for the event, they’re actually getting a small gift ahead of time indicating what to expect.

Apparently, the Redmond based company is literally sending out mangoes that are packaged together with the invitations to those individuals attending the event on the 24th. Without a doubt, there is no denying that mango will be the focal point of the event, but we’ve started to see some snippets of what to expect with the update a few days ago.

In any event, we’d imagine that invitees would probably snack on those mangoes shipped out to them, but we’re sure they’ll still be starving to see even more come the 24th, which is happening next week on Tuesday. Either way, we'll be there to give you all the latest up-to-date news about it.

Watch out Microsoft, Apple might sue. Apple owns Apple and everything Apple related. Including Apples.

This IS a mango. There's many types of it. This is a tropical mango, originally Red.

Agreed with JSern, it's also the angle that makes the fruit look like an apple. I love eating mangos, and that is deff a mango.
