Windows Phone Mango: Update schedule and new devices

Got a Windows Phone device? Find out when you'll receive the Mango update and keep tabs on upcoming Windows Phone handsets in our roundup.


Earlier today, Microsoft set Windows Phone 7.5 Mango free, and the updates are starting to roll out to handsets around the world, including here in the U.S. The company has done a good job of making the software available to most of the current devices, but a couple of the models are still in the testing or scheduling phase. If you own a Windows Phone device, you can check the chart below to see when you'll get the Mango update.

We should note that even if your phone is listed as getting Mango now, be aware that the updates are being delivered in batches, so you might not get it right away. You will receive a notification on your phone when the software is ready for download, which Microsoft says it could take up to several weeks.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
