Windows Phone 7 devices start receiving Mango updates by the crateful

At long last, the tasty update to Windows Phone 7 is finally arriving. If you happen to have any of the WP7 devices that are already out there, you should be receiving the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango upgrade within the next little while as Microsoft has begun pushing it out to the masses. Crate after crate, bushel after bushel (What’s the word for a bunch of mangoes? Is it really just a bunch?), the mangoes are arriving.

If you check out the update schedule on the official Microsoft site, you’ll see that Windows Phone 7.5 Mango is currently listed as “delivering update” across all carriers in the United States. This includes AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, open market phones, and “all other operators.”

Of course, this comes with a caveat. If you’re wondering why your phone hasn’t already told you that it’s ready for a tasty new treat, that’s because it’s going to take a few days, if not a few weeks before the Mango update is rolled out to all devices across all carriers. In the meantime, you just have to sit tight and make sure you have Zune for Windows or Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac all geared up, updated, and ready to roll.
