Even though the Windows Phone Mango update was released last week and you haven’t received your Windows Phone Mango update today – don’t worry. Microsoft hasn’t even pushed out the update to the whole world yet. According to them, as of today – Microsoft has only made Windows Phone 7.5 available to 50% of the world. And even though it’s available to 50% of the world, there’s still no guarantee you’re in the half that’s getting it. I quote the official Windows Phone blog:
“I know some of you have questions about how Windows Phones are selected to receive the update. Put simply, it’s done totally at random, with absolutely no preference for carrier, model, or country. Random sampling is an important engineering technique to accurately measure quality and pinpoint issues early. In some cases, this can have interesting consequences: A family, for example, can have identical Windows Phones, yet only one phone might get an update notification.”
So don’t worry, and have a little patience. For those of you who’ve managed to get the Mango update, how’s your phone treating you now?
