With reports speculating a mid-September launch of Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango firmware, the Redmond-based software giant has seemingly confirmed the launch of the updated mobile operating system – in Taiwan at least – telling attendees of its Tech Days event that it will come to the country on September 16 (Friday).

Exact details are not known as to how the update will be delivered, whether owners will be required to update via Microsoft’s Zune software or have to physically take their devices to specialist shops in the country to have their devices flashed by staff.

Rumours had pegged the Windows Phone update to hit on September 15, suggesting that the date could still be accurate as Microsoft could well begin its roll-out in Western regions first, before incorporating additional countries thereafter. Either way, the company should confirm or deny the rumour within the next 48 hours, supplying its first major update for Windows Phone owners around the world.
