Can anyone in-the-know provide us with an expected release date for the Mango update (HTC Arrive)? I know Microsoft has RTM'd the update to OEMs.
Sprint has not yet confirmed a release date for Windows 7 Mango and HTC has not confirmed a release date. I'm in the same boat as well as I am an HTC Arrive user. I can without a doubt say, that I am looking forward to this! Be sure to frequent the forums for updates. Hang in there!

Sept 15th, HTC and another Windows Vendor conrirmed that previous phones will be updated and they will start pushing the updated in segments on the 15th
I'm so excited, I can't wait as i recieved my arrive as a replacement phone, I am pretty content with it, but I want to be estatic about my phone.
i rather like to know if sprint has been on top of certifying the release than waiting and lagging behind everyone else. we know how at&t lagged behind on the previous update, but sprint hasn't had to do a major update like this one, so hopefully they are on the ball.
With recent confirmed news that AT&T (and possibly Verizon) will be rolling out Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) beginning Tuesday 9/27, will there be any info that Sprint will be doing similar? There have been reports of seeing HTC Arrives in random Sprint stores with 7.5 loaded on them, so I'm sure the release is ready. Any word on a timeframe?

It is true that it is being loaded on to demo phones in the stores. But it is still a looping demo ROM. Sprint still has no word on when they will be releasing the Mango 7.5 update to the Arrive. I, along with the rest of you, am impatiently waiting for this update.
