First Windows Phone Mango device on sale in Europe
Many of you may still be waiting on your Windows Phone 7.5 updates, but the first Mango device has hit the market in Europe for any of you who are in the market for a new device. Of course, Europe is a pretty big place, so the truth is that you have to be one of the lucky few who live in Russia if you want in on the deal. 

Andrey Kormiltsev, head of the HTC in Russia and CIS countries has announced that the HTC Mozart is now available for purchase in Russia and is pre-loaded with Windows Phone Mango. The Mozart will be available either through HTC's Russian site, The Messenger, or through MTS. The suggested price is 12,990 roubles (~$414), and as an added bonus through MTS, customers who purchase the Mozart will get a year of free mobile Internet. 

That's a pretty good deal for the mobile Internet, but the Mozart is an aging device at this point, and we were certainly hoping the first Mango device to go on sale in Europe would be something a bit newer.

It doesn't have anything to do with bada, so why would Peter care?

Because Peter highjacks damn near every WP7 article PA posts! I'm surprised he wasn't the first to post on this article, although he typically is the first to post on WP7 articles. Guess it's late at night where he is?

Yea, I often wonder if these spammers think this will actually help build their brand. You know, by pissing off the target consumers...

Damn can't we get some brand new WP7 Mango devices with 4 inch plus size screens with LTE for Verizon and Microsoft is a U.S company can you take care of us first.....

I'm sure the carriers are the ones slowing down the process. And I hate to break it to you, but Verizon is not making WP7 a priority until it is a guaranteed success. Sucks for people like us, because this knowledge made me settle for the Trophy (still a good phone btw) and will keep you waiting for that LTE Mango device until just before WP8 hits the shelves, and then the cycle will repeat...

I'm rocking a Trophy also waiting on the Mango myself and hope Verizon releases it in a timely manner. It's looking like 2012 for a new WP7 device on Verizon damn. Just have to see at CES 2012.

If we want Mango on a CDMA device here in the U.S., we are gonna have to settle for the Mango update on the Trophy or the Arrive. Neither Verizon or Sprint are going to take a chance on W7. Sprint I almost understand it- they need sure things. Right now, that is high end Android and a couple of Blackberries. I sure do not understand it with Verizon, though. They still reign as the largest carrier, and to allow AT&T to have all the Mango's makes no sense to me. If they are a hit, AT&T is forcing them to play catch up.
