Blurry pictures aren’t proof of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango roll out

Got to love baseless rumors and blurry pictures. Lot’s Mango rumors apparently originating from Orange France lately…the latest is blurry picture which is said to be from somebody who sent out his phone for repair at Orange France and got it back from them with Windows Phone 7.5 pre-loaded on it. Well, the first thing I did was to look up the device firmware and strangely this is exactly the same as the official NoDo one that was pushed out back on July 21st:

- Firmware Rev 1.0.10.10
- Hardware Rev 1.0.0.0
- Radio Software 1.0.10.10
- Radio Hardware 0.3.5.0
- Bootloader Ver 1.5.1.0
- Chip SOC 0.30.2.0

So what with have here is essentially a device with the RTM code (which has leaked a little while ago..) running on it. Either LG isn’t going to update it’s Optimus 7 firmware for Mango which I find a bit unlikely given that HTC and Samsung are updating them or Orange’s repair center is having some fun…or this is simply a picture of somebody’s device with the leaked Mango RTM code on it with a nice little story attached to it. You be the judge but we won’t have long to wait given that fall is when all the action begins.
