HTC HD7S to finally get update to Mango

An internal staff memo slipped out to WinRumors Monday has pointed to the HTC HD7S getting its hoped for Windows Phone 7.5 update soon. As of Tuesday, AT&T and Microsoft will start rolling out the OS upgrade on a gradual basis. The revamp is showing up in "controlled batch" amounts to make sure there aren't any problems.

Windows Phone 7.5 has already been rolling out to the HTC Surround, LG Quantum, and some versions of the Samsung Focus.

The revamp adds several large features, most of all multitasking but also a much improved, Internet Explorer 9-based browser and integration with Windows Live Messenger. Many subtle improvements, such as apps with tiles that can jump directly to a specific app component, are built in but not always exposed.
