Not a bad deal considering most off contract prices are like 500-600 dollars.

Why won't it be upgraded to Mango? Was that stated? If I didn't just get a good deal on a G2x I would have totally considered getting this for T-Mobile.

Yes, it will be upgraded to Mango. Microsoft has designed the Mango update to all devices, just as they did with the nodo (cut and paste) update that the Venue Pro did recieve. That is why there was such strict controls over size/type of processor, internal specs, ect. Microsoft wanted to have all 1st and 2nd generation devices updated.

Now, I have heard that there is a problem with "buggy" and sluggish performance on the DVP, but that Dell put out a hardware update that helped. That is worth looking into before buying.
