After a small delay (by comparison to Australian best practice) – Telstra have today publicly confirmed that they have the “Tango” Windows Phone update in test. Since Vodafone confirmed this back on June 8th, WPDownUnder has been waiting on additional Aussie Telco confirmation of the software update for existing handsets. New handsets available here, such as Telstra’s own Titan 4G or the Lumia 900 and 610 on other carriers are of course already shipping with this latest OS version.
Today’s Smartphone Software Update page at Telstra shows this new information:
With the staggered typical approach to update deployments, the previously confirmed global release of Nokia’s update (The MCR3 update with Tethering and other Nokia tweaks) from June 27th - a July ETA would seem pretty much right on target.
Thanks to those WPDownUnder readers / Tweeps who let Telstra know they were keen to see some public engagement on the update. Even so, it looks like it was left to others to update our CrowdSupport post at Telstra’s online community forums with this answer
