Hi,

Does anyone know if its likely we will get to upgrade to WM6?
Would be nice as it must be one of the last handsets to be launched with WM5....

My personal opinion is that this is very unlikely from Orange. The only option may be a hacked ROM from 'unofficial' sources.

As the mobile operators have to pay to license the OS, then develop compatible Ext ROM applications, they are more likely to simply point existing users at newer models and tell you to wait to upgrade (not much use if, like me, you are 1 month into an 18 month contract ;) )

O2, who have been longest in the Phone Edition market have never offered an OS version update, though T-Mobile are rumoured to be planning a WM6 update on the Ameo in some markets, though this is likely to be a chargable option.

Please visit link for press release from HTC regarding Windows Mobile 6 (WM6) upgrade.
http://www.solopalmari.com/ima...

WM6 upgrade will be offered by HTC to the following 5 devices:
HTC Advantage
HTC TyTN
HTC S620
HTC P4350
HTC P3300

Personally (I'm sure many share my view) I think the HTC P3600 / Orange SPV M700 should also be included.

Visit this online petition and add your feelings to increse pressure on HTC to release the upgrade.
