Update:Microsoft announced that Windows Phone Mango is now code complete and released to manufacturing, which are now open for manufacturers and carriers to announce new devices worldwide. Microsoft revealed a number of devices earlier this month, including a new Samsung device which appears to be similar to the company’s Galaxy S II phone. Microsoft is also expected to release a new build of Windows Phone Mango to developers shortly, expect to hear news about this by the end of the week. Microsoft appears to have included a new gray Windows Phone theme for its Mango release and the theme colors are designed to match each handset’s look and feel. Microsoft’s currently developer preview build of Mango does not include a gray theme but the company’s final build (7720) includes the new style.
