HTC Arrive spotted in Vegas Sprint store with Mango aboard
As we reported, Sprint customers should have their Windows Phone 7 handset updated to Mango sometime within the next week. With both AT&T and Verizon expected to receive the Windows Phone Mango update on September 27th, perhaps those using Sprint should be circling that date on their calendar, as well. With the software update this close to happening, you might expect Microsoft to have a few units out in the real world that have already been through the metamorphosis.

Sure enough, a forum member from WPCentral, who happens to live in Las Vegas, walked into a Sprint store in Sin City. Perhaps lady luck was with this person because he happened to find an HTC Arrive unit already updated with Windows Phone Mango, also known as OS version 7.10.7720.68. While Sprint has yet to announce a specific day for the update, it looks like it will be soon enough that Windows Phone 7 users should keep an eye out for it.

When is the Samsung Focus S coming out? That is the phone I'm waiting for. And wondering what carrier is getting it in Canada. Taking forever for new WP 7's to come out. Please take my money Microsoft, just give me something new and good in return. New Focus will do the trick.

Will be very interested to see how the updates go for everyone. I am ticking ever so close to my long awaited upgrade, so if a move off of AT&T happens, I need to see how the Arrive works after the Mango update. Be great if some gossip on new WP Mango phones for Sprint and Verizon is out by then, or at least confirmation that there is no new devices. I actually kinda like the Arrive, even with the "smaller-than-I-like-it" 3.6" screen. That fantastic keyboard and excellent reception really makes up for it.

I've been running the RTM that for over a month now on my Arrive with Sprint and it seems to have no problems with anything. My only problem is I can't edit older documents but that's a small thing. I also know that if this was going to be a work phone odds are you have a more updated version of office.

I was just in the Sprint Store on North Rainbow in Las Vegas today and saw Windows Phone Mango on their HTC Arrive. Nice!
