THOUGHT: Where are HTC's promised Windows Mobile 6 upgrades?

Back 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?

Cheers ~ Arne
