I think you've nailed it. I bet a host of currently shipping phones will start shipping with 6.5 instead of 6.1, TP2 included. I don't think they'd rush some of these other anticipated devices out early without us hearing more about it first. The market would be too flooded with new devices (not that I'd complain, but doesn't make sense for the companies launching them).

Re: the Truth about oct 6th and winMO 6.5

well i found 3 phones already that most had no clue about that will be out, granted they dont look to be USA bound... no device will ship with 6.5 b4 October 6th, that would defeat the purpose of a launch date... it took more than a minute for moguls to start shipping with 6.1 over 6.0.. maybe even a few months...

the market NEEDS a push of great devices all around... there really a small portion of high end phones, and winMO at that.... carriers need a big push right now of new and renewing customers...

and the customers definitely need a good, big push of nice upgraded/upgradeable devices as well

Re: the Truth about oct 6th and winMO 6.5

Yesterday I received a call from a Sprint Rep in response to an email I sent to Dan@Sprint.com. Most of the conversation was about the Hero and Sero (he wouldn't say if they will be compatible but in a followup email he said up to now ALL HTC phones HAVE been compatible). I asked if the Diamond 2 will be released in 2009 and if so when He said it will be released in 2009 and that as in the past (TP & D Vogue & Mogul) it will quickly follow release of the TP2.
Maybe the D2 will be the Sprint phone released on Oct 6 with 6.5. What do you think?

It has been on phonearena.com for weeks as coming to Sprint (Sprint uses them to "leak" info) and as I said before the Sprint Rep TOLD me it will be out this year and sooner rather then later. With all the other phones being released or rumored to be released The D2 just fell by the wayside. I was going to get the Hero, I already left my deposit, but the 3.6" screen and knowing I'll be able to keep SERO has me waiting for the D2, hopefully not too long.

you should email Sprint at Dan@sprint.com you will get an answer by email or phone within a day or so.

here im gonna go back and edit the first post... i thought i put this article in there: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-10322007-56.html pay attention to this " The software maker said on Tuesday that the first phones running Windows Mobile 6.5 will launch worldwide on October 6 and will include phones running on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. "
While I understand why you see that, the cnet.com article does not hold the wight that the MS press release does. All I am trying to say is that the carriers listed, WILL have 6.5. And, 6.5 WILL be released on 06 OCT. Those are 2 different facts that are unrelated. I'm not trying to be difficult, just trying to show you why I see it differently.

Re: the Truth about oct 6th and winMO 6.5

Just alittle bit of info, thisis related to Sprint, not any other carrier. I went into a local Sprint Store to have my TP repaired. They now offer a program at select stores, that if you have a phone that has been replace several times in an X period, they will swap you into a new phone in the store. the only phones they had I could swap into was the Palm Pro or Snap. I said that both were less than the TP, the manager agreed, but said they are the only WM devices. I asked about the TP2, i was told store level Oct 6, to go with the 6.5 launch. It will be preloaded, but she didn't know if it would be a replacement phone in the program due to having WM6.5
