Microsoft Accidentally Confirms Mango as Windows Phone 7.5″³

Good job! That’s 3 for 3 next to Socl.com and domain names. With a possible release of the  phone update in September, the above tweet from Microsoft’s own Imagine Cup (or, as every kid-at-heart of the 80s and 90s might prefer to call it, ICUP) team, which has since been deleted. Also worth noting is the subject of the pulled tweet itself: all finalists of the Imagine Cup (which just ended yesterday) will be receiving a Windows Phone 7.5 device of their very own by September, which BGR interprets as suggesting that the update itself should be all finalized by September as well.

Of course, Microsoft could quite easily mean that the winners will be getting pre-release developer devices, rather than retail-ready variants. It wouldn’t be the first time that happened in fact, the first two WP7 devices to hit the pockets of anyone outside of Microsoft were given to the winners of a development contest back in July of 2010, a full three months before the platform officially launched.
