Any clues as to when the Sprint TP2 will be upgraded to WM 6.5?

I am anxious to order the TP2 from Sprint now that the phones sales have started but I really don't want to install all my programs and contacts twice.

Does anyone have a clue as to when Sprint will upgrade this baby from WM 6.1 to 6.5? Will it be on the 10/6 release date for 6.5 or later?

No one here can give you anthing more than a guess. You could get the same accuracy by closing your eyes and thinking of any date between now and the next 10 years lol...

The only thing you can say for certain is it will come no sooner than the 10/6 date announced by Microsoft (that doesn't count a leak if one happens).

Hopefully soon cause that means Telus would have already upgraded or won't be far behind

Does anyone remember how long it took Sprint to upgrade from WM 6.0 to 6.1 when it was released?

Re: Any clues as to when the Sprint TP2 will be upgraded to WM 6.5?

@NYC Guy

Release Dates >
WM6.0 > @1/26-2/11/2007
WM6.1 > 6/15/2008
WM6.5 > 10/6/2009 ?
It would appear that
@1 year & 4 months is the magic period of time for Microsoft Release Dates.
Microsoft has an October 6 release date for 6.5
If they are accurate and timely, that is when it will be available.
The question is when will the shipped devices have WM6.5
installed on them?
And if the Pro 2 will already have it installed from the first shipment?
Maybe October 6 is the projected release date for 6.5 to the public, but the devices may already have it installed prior to that date.

The HTC Touch 2 (not Touch Pro 2) is supposed to be the 1st phone to ship w/ 6.5, per Engadget

If you dig through Engadget, the Sony Xperia2 is slated to be out late 4th qtr w/ 6.5 as well.

So if you were to get the TP2 now it could be many months after the Oct. 6th release before Sprint gives us the 6.5 upgrade.

I think you are missing the crux of my question. Sprint has stated in their press release that their TP2 will be shipped with 6.1 so I doubt that it will be shipped with the newer 6.5 OS. With 6.5 being officially released by Microsoft on 10/6 how long after that will Sprint release their official ROM upgrade for the TP2?
