Microsoft is planning to launch Windows Phone Mango in Taiwan on September 16th11
From the sound of it all, it’s being reported that the some Microsoft people attending TechDays Taiwan 2011 announced to the audience that the long awaited Mango update is going to be released in Taiwan on September 16th. Unfortunately, there was no mention as to how the update will be rolled out – like some sort of over-the-air update. Strangely, some people believe that handset owners will need to bring their phones to specific shops in order for them to be flashed.
Nevertheless, we’ll surely know more in a couple of days when it’s expected to all go down. However, we’re sure that there are others out wondering when it’ll become available in other markets around the world.

UPDATE: The guys at ILoveWP have received a confirmation on the matter. On September 16, HTC will be upgrading Windows Phone handsets to Mango at all of its retail stores throughout Taiwan. What's more is that the day will be organized as a social event with prizes being given away to the attendees. The entire procedure is estimated to take about 20 minutes, but a software backup is strongly recommended to be performed prior to the update.
