Microsoft's General Manager of Customer Experience Engineering, Eric Hautala has released a message saying that the Windows Phone Mango updates will be hitting American carriers in the next one to two weeks. Hautala says that Microsoft's hardware partners have been working really hard to get the update ready, and most importantly, to bring the update to every WP7 handset during the update process.

Nodo was a good update rollout, only some Focus and Omnia handsets had real problems. But this is a HUGE update as compared to that one. I am cheering for them. This is a great selling point for Windows Phones: No one gets left out. After all the "leaks" about when the Mango will be released, this is actually still earlier than the orignal plan called for back when Mango was first announced. They were expecting the Holiday season or so. September or early October is a spectacular roll out time.

I love my android htc sensation but I want to get away from htc sense since it is so heavy on my processor. On the other hand though, I still have to have htc's fantastic build quality! I've stayed out of wp7 because it was brand new and I thought it had tons of bugs. But right now I'm thinking htc phone, mango, and no more heavy sense!

Can't wait. More excited for when the Samsung Focus S is released. Anyone have any idea of it's release date and what carrier is getting it in Canada? Taking forever for new phones to come out. Can't wait to get rid of my IPhone and move to WP7.

wp7 is still way behind in functionalities compared with android. it must have the following for masses acceptance: 1. expandable memory slot 2. native youtube client 3. support for higher resolutions (qhd) 4. divx/ xvid video codoecs support 5. full flash support in the browser

Depends on your definition of functional. Pretty much all the points you listed are driven by notion that the smartphone is essentially a media device, which it is not for many of us. Personally, the WP7 really excels where I need it to, which is with e-mail, calendar, networking integration, and local searches/navigation. I do watch the occasional video and it still works well, but I much prefer to watch videos on a computer (and I almost always have access to one). When you have a device that has more of its features directly integrated into the OS, you tend to be able to do the things you want to more quickly and efficiently. Top it off with a system that is stable and a UI that is always fluid; that is my definition of functional when it comes to phones.

@Zak they all pretty much have an expandable SD card slot, why do you think theres people with 32 gig HTC Arrives or Samsung Focus WP7 phones....and its not a hard switch if you look it up guy! and Flash support obviously doesn't matter to people seeing how the Iphone sold so much, I personally can live without it seeing that I have a comp. I think some people (not necessarily saying you Zak) expect too much out of there phones I mean yeah the Technology is there and there are certain phones that can do certain things better then others but if all smart phone did the same thing there wouldnt be a wide variety of choice now would it? The your only choice would be based one performance.
