Following up Microsoft’s announcement of the Windows Phone 7.1 Mango Update is Nokia’s, stating that its first WP7 device (yes, one device) will have the Mango Update pre-loaded onto it.
Are mangoes popular in Finland?
In a post on the Nokia Conversations blog, Nokia says, “Today Microsoft has announced the key new ingredients of the latest ‘Mango’ release of the Windows Phone operating system. This is the software that will be used on the first Nokia with Windows Phone device, and so should be of keen interest to Nokia-watchers everywhere.”
“We are very excited about our strategic partnership with Microsoft, and Mango is a great milestone for the first Nokia with Windows Phone devices,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president for Smart Devices, Nokia. “We believe Mango offers developers opportunities to create new mobile experiences leveraging both companies complementary assets while providing consumers with a new choice in mobile.”
Well that’s all well and good, but there’s no word on exactly when the device will be launching. Hopefully we’ll hear more on that front soon.
