Did a Microsoft employee just inadvertently let the cat out of the bag? Posting to the companys official Microsoft Imagine Cup Twitter account, a Microsoft rep confirmed that all Imagine Cup challenge finalists will receive Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handsets early this fall.
The post reads: ImagineCup finalists ALL receive Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Release!! Each student will get the phone by September!
We doubt the tech giant plans to dole out pre-release devices, so it could be safe to assume the first batch of Mango phones will launch in late August or early September.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
