in April, HTC said it plans
to provide free Windows Mobile 6 upgrades
for a couple of Windows
Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Editions and Smartphones and as the June is going to
pass bye, I wonder where the (official) upgrades are?
Initially, HTC said "The upgrades will be rolled out from June, in line with
the operator partners' strategies" but while a couple of carriers have
released "their" upgrades already (for instance T-Mobile US for the
T-Mobile Dash and O2
Germany for the Xda orbit)
original HTC Device owners are still awaiting the releases for their HTC S620
and HTC P4350.
No word yet, not a single byte on HTC's support site but it seems it cannot
take too long anymore as
Akihabara News unveiled today. These guys just sent an Dopod 838 Pro for
repair back to Taiwan and today the got it back! Preloaded with a new official
Windows Mobile 6 ROM!
Looks like HTC is pretty much ready with adopting the vanilla Windows Mobile
6 OS for their devices - now it's time to release promised ROMs. Especially
after customized ROMs were made available earlier already.
Anyone else awaiting the availability and for which devices do you await the
Windows Mobile 6 upgrade?
