    This is the first big annoyance I've had with WP7 - or rather, the WP7 ecosystem. Microsoft is a massive company with massive resources, and it increasingly looks like it can't properly organise a global release date for software for unbranded phones we all KNOW is finished.

    iOS updates arrive on the date they say they will, for everyone. Yet the best MS can manage for a group of users a fraction of the size of the iOS user base is a walk-in service for Taiwan and not even a solid date for the rest of us, leaving us to pester carriers for snippets of info?

    Sorry, that's poor, whatever way you look at it (unless you live in Taiwan)
    Cant really argue with that.

    Have a bit of patience guys. Honestly, I feel the frustration after months of researching Mango and teasing myself with the prospect of getting it today. But, that's just it, I chose to invest hope into an 'unofficial rumour' and I don't expect MS to squish this hype surrounding Mango by accepting or denying any credibility to rumours.

    Just enjoy it dudes... it's all something to look back on and laugh about. :)
    They've been teasing the bloody update since February, we know its gone to OEM's and carriers, we've heard from 3 carriers that they've completed testing and its up to Microsoft to release it - yet all we get is a video showing another feature we cant use as we dont have the update or the new devices.

    Thats a long time to be kept dangling. As Pronk said, its pretty poor all round.

    Deutsche Telekom in Germany also ready for Mango, says its coming mid-October | WMPoweruser
    Well, looks like from DT in Germany, is saying October, but they have started testing and are ready to roll out. It could also mean devices too.

    Damn it, giving up for the evening. The availability in Taiwan really got my hopes up. I suppose MS didn't promise anything for today, so no loss. Lets hope it doesn't take much longer.

    here we go again pronk... lol. first of all MS has never specified a date, but saying it will be this fall? guess what, its not fall yet... so if we get it here soon, it will be early. secondly ios has one phone to update and had one carrier ... but they control their updates because it doesnt get released to manufactures... that has pros and cons. my thoughts are, since you are always referencing to iphones and ios, just go buy one... im sure you would be happier. then it will match you mac and your ipad if you have one... it would complete that boring eco system. personally, i am going to continue to wait for mango because even w/o it, my phone still blows an iphone out of the water.

    removable battery, zune pass, xbox live , FB & tiwtter integration, choice of phone, expandable memory, MS office, skydrive, list goes on....

    You are aware of that you'll have to restore to your NoDo backup to get the real Mango later?

    Yeh i know, no big deal though as all i'll lose is changes i've made in the dev version of Mango (which isn't much at the moment). I'll be using it for development more than anything else, still nice to see all the new features though, looking forward to the final release.

    Oh really? Someone's upset because a rumored date didn't come into fruition? What about android shipping phones with FROYO still when 2.3 is about to quickly turn into 2.4 with ANOTHER rumored update following shortly?

    the front page comments are pretty bad with this too.
    Not surprised at all. People simply need to get over it. Of course they're going to compare it to iOS cause they KNOW if they utter ANY comparison to Android's update schedule, it'll be null and void

    I would LOVE to know just exactly what it is that the carriers are "testing", and how many critical items they've discovered that had to be sent back to Microsoft to be fixed.

    Wow, no kidding. Was just reading the front page and amazed at how pissed people are at Microsoft when they aren't the ones who built up all this expectation, it was the speculative tech journalism hype machine. If there's to be any vitriol maybe it should be directed at them instead. Pointing a finger at the person in the mirror for buying into it in the first place would not exactly be misplaced blame either.

    Th press release for ATT said that they would be AMONG the first it did not say they be THE firs and it's coming this fall which I believe Saturday or 9 days at the least. If yo want it now move to Taiwan they get it on the 16th but they have to take it to a store to get it installed and it takes20 minutes.


    It would nice if everybody would bepatient but most people given the way the postings are on all windows phone sites are a petulant impatient glass half empty lot!

    Dammit. Reading through all this speculation has made me feel antsy. I'm gonna go find something else to do before my head explodes from the anticipation. Here's hoping they don't adhere to Blizzard's definition of "soon".
    I'm a WebOS fan. We OWN the definition of "coming soon" or "in the coming months" ....lol
