    Still waiting for those phones to come out. I'm in the market for a smartphone right now, and the end of the year is still far away...

    @Bas: I am hoping for something running Mango that is better than the Samsung Galaxy 2

    I'd update my HD7, but I'd have to find it under all the dust and charge it up. Worst phone purchase ever.

    I have been at "Please wait while we determine the amount of disk space required to complete the update." for quite a while now.

    I may have a lot of content on my device, though I did delete several videos before I started the update process.

    My device is a developer unlocked (isv) mango pre-release version.

    Update: My Zune desktop is still stuck at determining space, but the phone itself says it has upgraded.

    Update 2:  I canceled Zune desktop, then a second update, isv clean up, is now running.

    Update 3: All updates successful Smiley

    The speaker is too quiet, it's got the typical sh1tty-quality HTC camera, and it has one of the tiniest batteries I've ever seen. Overall, I'm far from satisfied with the purchase, but it still offers a far better experience than my Android phone.

    Meh.  Sprint still hasn't pushed it out.

    I had picked up an HTC Arrive, and returned it so that I could use my old BlackBerry. I really felt out of place with all the social integration stuff, that I didn't care to participate in. It seemed to be a total productivity killer. I've disabled my Facebook account on several occasions, but in the end found it easier to just create an Outlook rule to delete any emails from Facebook.

    I really don't care for Metro, the pivot control, or the tiles. However, I am really impressed with the quality of the namespaces, classes, and methods. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I'm glad to see Microsoft's being able to get all the carriers to test Mango so quickly and sign-off on the roll-out of the update. The NoDo roll-out was a near disaster in comparison.

    LOLz, this is so strange, but, I couldn't BK my phone for the second update (I suppose the first is just NoDo). Always gets to 3% and the phone restarts. But, after I removed a lot of movies, spongebob, music, I am fine now. Doing the final updates now. Smiley

     

    I am guess they think my USB is too slow because it takes a long time to 3%. Seems like they only monitor % as speed test instead of real bandwidth. Or maybe it is slower to transfer those contents that I deleted? I am not sure, but, seems like it is better to remove many stuff before BK.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    The Zune 'force' trick has never worked for me -- possibly due to low bandwidth, I can never get the timing right (either 'your phone is up to date' or 'there was a problem checking, make sure internet is connected' errors). Will probably have to wait for 'official' release slot from phone provider.

    The Samsung Focus S is essentially the Samsung Galaxy S II running mango.
