I just left the T-Mobile store in my area and here is the deal so far for Mango as I was told:
1. T-Mobile folks are being trained by MS Rep's next week on the new "Mango" phones
2. Mango updates will start rolling out end of Qrt...which is Sept. 1st.
3. T-Mobile will be provided with "Mango" SD cards from in store Mango upgrades for NoDo WP7 handsets.
4. No word on when the handset's arrive but he said around Sept. 1st

I will keep you posted on further updates. The only reason that I got this info is because one member of my staff works there part time.

Hmm I wonder if mango phones will actually launch September 1st. HTC is unveiling the Omega and Eternity that day, and the rumor said they would launch sooner than we might expect.

No 3 sounds wrong. The HD7 doesnt have a storage card slot so "Mango SD cards" sound like a mixup with the android updates for the LG or htc android. Did your source give details on how that is supposed to work?

Maybe I didn't explain it right...they are using an SD card to hookup to the phone to upgrade the OS. They are flashing it.

its probly just gona be the Update they can put on the store PC so they can connect the phone and update it for the client with ZUNE ( we did that for the Iphones 3gs with Itunes whent he Iphone 4 came out )

but i still find it weird cause MANGo can just be updated on your Own zune in 15min...

one thing they should do is Provide you with a CD with a ZUNE exe file in the WP7 box!

From what I have been told...there are a ton of folks that just can't get Zune to work on their pc's. So T-Mobile in my area are providing the "build" in house to help folks out. The only reason I went up there today was to get the code to unlock my handset. LOL

I couldn't tell you. All I know is I'm waiting for the "Official" build from them. I could care less how it get's on my phone as long as it get's there. LOL

New devices next week would be sweet. I would be nice to get this out and rolling, with new handsets! Where's that Paul Thourott guy at!

Let's hope to God that Thourott's "2012" prediction is off by at least three months, even four. I have two lines out of contract and would be thrilled to use one up next week!

The T-mobile rep I spoke to claimed Oct. 5th for new Mango handsets and that the Omega AND Eternity would be hitting Tmobile. But, he also tried to argue with me that Windows Mobile and Windows Phone are the same thing. But, he also wouldn't accept my $500 wager that WM and WP were entirely different. So, take that for what it's worth. Hah.

Two other Tmobile reps I talked to at a different store had no clue about Mango nor did they have a clue about new WP devices at all.

I stopped in a Tmobile and the demo they had locked in a drawer didn't even have the NODO update. The first time I ever saw a windows phone with screen lag. I almost wanted to run out of the store with it, clean it up, update it and return it. (in a box with no return address of course)

it would be awesome. One way or another, we'll be getting Mango soon. In new handsets or actual upgrade. I'm hoping both. I also have a upgrade, and it's burning a hole in my pocket. I hope Samsung and HTC announce something amazing on the 1st.

The last time I went to the AT&T store the LG phone wouldn't turn on and the Samsung Focus had terrible burn in on the screen. The demo screen tiles were a yellow ghost image on the screen. Not a good way to promote WP7.

That sounds great considering that I was planing to go to T-mobile instead of my regular carrier but the seller did her best to keep me away from it. Apparently is full of bugs or something.

Anyway I can't wait to see the Eternity, is the first one I'm excited about.
