Microsoft Now Pushing Mango, Updated SDK to Developers
Microsoft today indicated through a blog post that registered developers now have access to the Windows Phone 7 Mango platform. Developers may download and install the latest version of WP7 on their handsets, though Microsoft cautions that Mango is still in beta status and a number of consumer features are absent. The early access program is meant to give WP7 developers a better understanding of the platform's capabilities, while also providing them with test devices with which to update/develop their applications. Developers will need to first update to the second beta of the WP7.1 SDK in order to access Mango.
