Windows Phone 7.5 Mango roll out starting in the in a week or two

The official word is finally out: The Windows phone 7.5 Mango roll out will start in a week or two just in time for the Fall season

For months, we and dozens of our partner companies have been laying the groundwork for the Windows Phone 7.5 update—and making solid progress. As a result, we now expect to start rolling it out in the next week or two.

All device’s firmware will also been update by the manufactures just like speculated in a previous post:

During the official Windows Phone 7.5 update process, every Windows Phone will also receive software from the handset manufacturer. This matched and paired firmware has been painstakingly tuned so your phone—and apps—work with all the new features of Windows Phone 7.5. Since your phone requires the proper firmware to function as designed, my advice is simple: steer clear of bootleg updates and homebrew tools.

Remember that if you are currently running the Mango Beta or RTM or the Samsung Omnia 7 RC1 firmware you will have to revert back to a NoDo rom/firmware or you won’t received the Mango update notification. For a list of all of the new Mango features head over here.
