Microsoft® would roll out Mango for half of Windows® Phone 7 devices
Did not receive Mango updates on your Windows Phone 7? Do not worry! Microsoft is going to revamp the update structure soon. Just less than a week ago, Microsoft rolled out Mango. It was a major update for Windows Phone 7 platform, which could offer you extra features and stability. However, the update was launched all over the world, but very few people could have a 'taste' of the Mango. So, it is quite possible that you might have missed this update or were unable to receive a notification on your device. The actual reason behind this game play was to analyze the response for Mango from different carriers. For that reason, it was a random release for all the Windows Phone 7 devices.
Eric Hautala, General Manager, Customer Experience Engineering Windows Phone, said that this sort of technique is usually helpful in identifying the flaws in a package. Just in case, there are some major problems then developers can correct them and prevent all the users from further issues.
In one of his blog post, Hautala mentioned the benefits of random sampling technique. He said, "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 the quality and pinpoint the issues early.”
Seeing the current response, Microsoft now wants to make sure that the update should reach at least 50 percent of the users. In this way, the company would be able to analyze the response in a better way. So, if you are eagerly waiting for Mango on your smart phone then simply check the status. In order to check the status, Microsoft has offered a specific button on Windows Phone 7 devices. By and large, you will be receiving Mango updates over the air.
