Your One Post For Windows Phone News and Rumors

What a day, what a day.  I couldn’t be happier about everything that will be covered in this post.  Let’s start with the big news….. MANGO!  Unfortunately I can’t give a specific date for when the HD7 will have Mango pushed to it, but just hearing that the update will be ready “in the coming weeks” is good enough for me.  Here is the quote from the Windows Team Blog:

For months, we and dozens of our partner companies have been laying the groundwork for the Windows Phone 7.5 update—and making solid progress. As a result, we now expect to start rolling it out in the next week or two. At that time, we’ll also refresh the Where’s My Phone Update? table to reflect the worldwide rollout status.

On to better news, it looks like those stickers (shown above) are going to be put to good use here pretty soon.  A very familiar device name, HTC Radar 4G, popped up into a recently Mango updated app, “I’m a WP7.”  We surely think that this device is destined for T-Mobile, note the stickers (I love stickers!).  We also think that this device is slated for a late October/early November launch, or so a little birdie told us.  It’s all very exciting, it really is.  I want one, with Beats by Dre please.

    While other carriers are getting the big boys, Tmo gets the lesser.  I just don’t get!  Its like they want to servive but don’t wanna work for it.  And now depedant on the ATT merger.  And to the Tmo fanboys, STFU!  This is about service as a whole; great phones, better reception, and competative prices.  Not your little “oh i love tmo, and i support them.”  Yeah I’m a tmo customer and I expect the best for the money I paid and have paid!

    I love my HD7.  I wish the Radar’s big brother, the HTC Titan, was coming the Magenta way though… As much as I do love the white/silver combo of the Radar, its midling specs just aren’t doing it for me.  Titan has more memory, better cameras, and a bigger screen.

      Bigger screen but same resolution = lower pixel density. Not a big deal for most but I worry about loss of video quality with things like Netflix.

    Really do hope this comes before the acquisition. I’m saving my upgrade waiting for one of the new WP devices (or in this case, device). I’ve lost hope for Nokia WP comingto the US before the acquisition, and I don’t want to lose my upgrade due to AT&T or wherever my account gets “divested”.

    I will have to see this thing in person, though.

    I’m hoping the HD7 is still available when I upgrade in January, but if not the Radar should do the job. If it shows up with Beats, then all the better.

    I will be quite disappointed if TMO doesn’t get the Titan. After our long run with Windows super-screen phones; HD2 and HD7, that no other carrier picked up, I would hate to think that we’d get left out on the natural successor. Please deliver the Titan or the mythical Bresson.

      I think the Titan is going over to at&t. We get the radar of course. I thought TM would get the Titan because its on deutsch tmbile. They did the same thing when the hd2 came out.

    Well they got Mango, and now 4g….i really like these WP7 phones, but they gotta get wi-fi calling….. The best thing Tmo has….im suprised no other carrier copied that……wi fi calling and im in

    Don’t know if this is on topic, but I called TM last June re ATT merger. Was told merger uncertain but I could get another 2 yr. contract and go to ANY TM store and get a FREE upgrade of phones. I extended my service for 2 yrs. but visited 4 TM stores and NONE would give me a new free upgrade phone. One saleman suggested I call the Loyalty Dept. @TM:disqus 
     which I did. (this was after I had called TM several times with no results.) Loyalty Dept. had no solution so transferred me and I got someone who told me I could have free either a LG or Samsung; I chose Samsung since I had one at the beginning of my cell service w/TM.  My husband & I were gone for 3 wks to Alaska and upon returning took our new phones to a TM store at BW8 & Gessner, Houston, and were fortunate to have a young hispanic help us with our new phones. She was an excellent representative for TM.  Later I happen to log in my TM account and saw that they charged me $137+ for these FREE phones, plus $20 for shipping and another charge for “insurance” which was never discussed.  After many phone calls, I was asked what TM needed to do to satisfy me, a long term customer. Told TM to take these charges off, which they finally did.TM used to be a great customer service cell co. but no more. They have laid off 1000+ people and now have foreigners answering our calls to CS who don’t understand what our problem is and we can’t understand them. I used to recommend TM to others but not anymore, and I will go elsewhere when my 2 yr. contract is over.  The people “upstairs” have ruined TM.
