as much as i wanna argue with u mike. all i can do is agree. i bet we wait all this time to have the same 6.5 that at&t and verizon, and even t mobile has. if that happens i really would like to ask why so long. u cant say oh just because of sprint stuff like sprint tv. because verizon has vcast and at&t have they on tv stuff. so i really would like to know what happened if we got are 6.5 update and its not the most recent one out there with the most updated sense ui and everything else. it would be a kick in the face if its the 6.5 that was given to sprint to look over in 2009.
update!!!!!!!! Everyone i just read a new article that shows that we should receive are update on Friday the 19th for sure and it will be available at sprint.com/downloads. Check the link out, Let me know what u think.
only thing that looks funny to me is why does it have a picture of the touch pro instead of the touch pro 2 on the side of it. I dont know. Let me know what u think.
Picture looks like a fake. Check the angle of the text on the 'announcement' versus the angle of the text on the link text. Shows the wrong phone too.
Someone is havin a little fun.
Looks like Sprint will be making 6.5 available starting tomorrow 03.19.10
Keep in mind about all these other web sites that are reporting the update... they are all citing PPCGeeks (which is a VERY TRUSTED SOURCE, usually) for the information.
That's a single point of failure scenario. If PPCGeeks got punked on this one, then everyone else is just propogating misinformation.
Also keep in mind that, as usual, Sprint has officially said NOTHING about this update (you think they would have by now if tomorrow was the real go live date) so they have complete deniability if this really was just a hoax.
I guess we'll just wait and see what happens.
I don't believe Sprint every pre-announces updates. The dates get leaked, but I don't recall ever seeing anything offiical, at least not to the exact day. Not my WinMo devices, nor the Pre when I tried it out last summer. Now the day of they will probably put it out on Twitter and maybe Facebook, but not before.
PhoneNews.com is reporting the 6.5 update rollout for tomorrow.
And their source, wait for it, wait for it...
Nothing like circular hyperlinks to make it ALL believable.
Just got the Sprint Small Business Catalog in the mail. For the HTC TP2 under the features it says:
"Amp up productivity and upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 starting in March"
