    I upgraded yesterday.. before my upgrade i was contemplating selling my tp2 Now u can barley tell its Windows Mobile Based i love it…. i still perfer my Adroid Phone though

    • efjay

      Why get a WM device in the first place if you dont like the OS?

    • Sanjay

      @Doyle, where did you get the upgrade, is it safe for me to do this or should I wait for the TMO upgrade? Any advantages to the route you chose versus waiting for TMO?

      @David, do you have an opinion on this?

  • Penpen72

    Makes me wish I had got thw TP2 instead of this dreadful Cliq!

    I really hope they host the WM 6.1 file as well in case I want to go back.

    • Jack

      When you upgrade and see all improvements (UI, Better Sound Quality, Better Performance, More Apps, Better Signal, and etc.) then you don’y wanna go back.

  • IsaacM

    welll us poor people stuck with a shadow still have an option. But we cant look to XDA-Developers anymore. All we can do though is go to’s forums and install the Shadow Red Rom(the only 6.5 rom for the shadow) by agoetz5021 or download his cooked ROM and cook our own.

  • CT


    You might have to call up CC and request that the 6.1 be hosted

    • xnifex

      I guess I could try that. I wonder if they’ll do it.

  • Josh

    Anyone know if this is going to be Windows Mobile 6.5.3 build?

  • Lukas

    I find it funny how they put on the original wm 6.5 picture on. Not even WM 6.5.5 looks like that.

  • Biggie

    Hey David you forgot to mention owners of the Regular old Dash.

    • David

      Yeah nothing is mentioned about that device going eligible for the update as well. The comment specifies just the two devices and that’s all I’ve been hearing for a while. There might be a reason for that but I can’t say for sure.

      • Biggie

        T-mo probably said F them they need to buy new phones from us!!

  • J-Hop2o6

    even tho im not gonna put this on my phone (since i have a custom rom on my TP2), where is the TP2 upgrade link on the t_mobile site?

  • rapaleeman

    I actually got a laugh out of the Shadow comment.

    My suggestion would be to buy a different phone.

    The original Shadow was decent after they fixed the battery issue, but the Shadow 2009 was/is a piece of Fisher-Price garbage. I thought that thing was going to break in my hand when I first tried it.

    • Biggie

      What do you mean by fixed the battery problem wasn’t the fix getting a fat battery and battery door?

  • incasurf

    I got wm 6.5 for my wing try nice !!!

  • just some dude

    WOW that looks like garbage.

    • conrad

      Dude you just can’t help yourself can you? Every single post regarding windows mobile you have to chime in with how much you hate it. Did Microsoft touch you where your bathing suite covers when you were a child ( so basically yesterday )

  • Biggie

    who are you to tell people what the right decision is when it come to phones or anything for that matter?

    • conrad

      You could swallow your own fist

    • Biggie

      you didn’t answer my question apparently you need to learn how to answer peoples questions or you’ll never be able to get a job for google licking their boots

  • just some dude

    i just read that the Nexus One was voted best phone at CES. No surprise too me just thought id share. Oh and no mention of Windows mobile , or windows anywhere. oooooo poor windows.

    • Biggie

      At least Windows handsets can connect to T-mo’s 3G network where’s your answer for that problem?

      • just some dude

        What problem? my nexus one works as it should with tmo 3G. And to answer your question above, Sometimes one has to weed out the dumb questions from the relevant ones.

  • SnapDragin

    I love your critical opinion, eash OS is suited to fulfill a users needs. You feel Windows lacks which it does but during the CES all the discussions were based on how the new mobile processors for phones have made leaps and bounds of improvements in overall speed. This is going to allow to see a much more functional side to the handset. WM is for business users, those who live out of suitcases and for those who dont have a need to play. So while you watch Luk Luk someone else will be putting together a presentation. Last thing, where is full flash capability? Windows handsets can handle the site why cant the Android?

    • just some dude

      There is no use for WM in the corporate world, RIM has that locked down. For the rest of us theres Android. Windows Mobile is quickly becoming irrelevant in todays world. And judging from the early peeks in to windows 7 mobile even more so.

      • Biggie

        RIM has nothing locked down with all their BIS outages, lack of any kind of change to their OS and bad browser. And to your stupid response you gave and irrelevant answer to my one questions so you were not weeding anything out except for your brain.

  • just some dude

    Officially im guessing its a couple of updates away, And for my rooted nexus one im enjoying flash right now.
