Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update coming within two weeks

Windows Phone 7 fans can look forward to the mobile OS’ latest update, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, arriving on handsets “in the next week or two” according to Eric Hautala on Microsoft’s Windows Team blog.

Hautala said that the update had been months in the making, but was now almost ready for a public release. In the post, he also warns against installing leaked versions of Mango that have been doing the rounds on the internet in the last couple of weeks. “[Mango] has been painstakingly tuned so your phone – and apps – work with all the new features of Windows Phone 7.5.” Says Hautala. “Since your phone requires the proper firmware to function as designed, my advice is simple: steer clear of bootleg updates and homebrew tools.”

Mango’s been the subject of speculation for months, after Microsoft annoucned the update at a special Mango-centric event back in May. New features include better Twitter and social network integration, a single inbox for all a user’s e-mail accounts, improved multi-tasking and an updated mobile version of Internet Explorer.
