Here we go folks! Microsoft just refreshed their "Where's my phone update?" web page with Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" information for various countries. The good news? Most of you are going live soon. To refresh, Microsoft users the term "scheduling" to mean "Microsoft is scheduling the update for delivery. This phase typically lasts 10 business days or less". Here are the list of countries scheduled (and all carriers):
- Hutchinson Group
- Vodafone Group
- Deutsche Telekom
- Orange Group
- Open Market phones
Odd man out? Spain. You're still testing.
For the U.S. carriers that are scheduling:
- Open market
Interestingly, Sprint is listed as "testing" even though their support page is showing it as imminent.
Now we should caution: (1) Microsoft still needs to "Deliver" this update, which is a different status, but we expect those to change real soon over the next few days (2) They will trickle out the update at first, getting feedback and diagnostics--if positive, they will open up more batches for updating. So don't expect everyone to get it all at once--we're talking a few weeks here. Still, this is looking much better than NoDo, for sure.
Thanks, ChabacO, Vanessa and Anastasios-Antonios T., for the tip!
