Windows Phone 7 Just Went RTM (Released to Manufacturers).

A recent announcement was made by Microsoft stating that the latest incarnation of their Windows Mobile OS has just gone live for mass production. XDA member TAEL has started a discussion thread regarding the announcement. Microsoft claims that this is the most thoroughly tested OS they have ever released for a mobile platform and it is bound to be perfection in a small package.

Needless to say, this announcement means that we will very soon start seeing far more active development for WP7 as we are closer and closer to the official release of the first devices sporting the new OS, which means that Microsoft will no longer have or try to keep this under wraps. In fact, there have already been numerous spotting of devices made for WP7 (most of them test devices by different manufacturers).

Today is the day that the Windows Phone team has been driving towards, and we’re very excited to say that we’ve reached the biggest milestone for our internal team – the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Windows Phone 7! While the final integration of Windows Phone 7 with our partners’ hardware, software, and networks is underway, the work of our internal engineering team is largely complete.
Windows Phone 7 is the most thoroughly tested mobile platform Microsoft has ever released. We had nearly ten thousand devices running automated tests daily, over a half million hours of
active self-hosting use, over three and a half million hours of stress test passes, and eight and a half million hours of fully automated test passes. We’ve had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters testing our software and giving us great feedback. We are ready.

If you would like to join in the talks, please feel free to post in the discussion thread.
