Microsoft signs off an RTM build of the Windows Phone Mango

Microsoft's latest version of their mobile operating system, Windows Phone Mango, was signed off to Release To Manufacturing. What does that mean? Well, aside from the fact that it is nearing the time of this version of the OS to be released for download so that your Windows Phone 7 devices will get the benefits of this OS, it also is a sign that this version of the platform is ready to go to network operators and OEMs so that they can start optimizing the mobile OS and prep it for the update process.

"In May, we officially took the wraps off of Mango, a release including hundreds of new features that create a smarter and easier approach to communications and apps, while delivering the best web experience. My favorites?
· Our unique new email Conversation View which helps me to efficiently participate in long email discussions with my friends and co-workers.
· Threads that bring together my text, IM, and Facebook chat all into one conversation.
· App Multitasking, enabling me to efficiently work on my email, listen to music, and then pop in and out ofWords By Post games when it is my turn. Mango also connects apps to search results and deepens integration within the Hubs like Music and Video and Pictures.
· Internet Explorer 9 for fast web browsing and support for new HTML 5 web sites.
We can’t wait to get Mango in your hands so you can experience all the new features for yourself and give us feedback on where to go next. As we reach additional milestones we will be back to share more but until then, thank you for your support of Windows Phone." - Windows Team Blog
