ATT 8525 Finally Gets WM6

This is good news: HTC and AT&T have finally released the Windows Mobile 6 ROM update for the 8525. You'll get AT&T branding instead of Cingular, of course, but what you'll really get is Windows Mobile 6 and a bunch of extras:

  • Push to Talk
  • AT&T's internet links (video, music, etc)
  • Correctly shows E vs 3G depending on your connection
  • Use X to close apps (huzzah!)
  • Did I mention Windows Mobile 6?

I'd like to say that this bodes well for the Blackjack WM6 upgrade and also for the Treo 750 WM6 upgrade. I like to say that, but I won't. Instead I'll just write it on my bathroom mirror; write it backwards ....in blood.

It's Halloween, you know, and I hear tricks like that can summon mysterious entities that may or may not even exist. At this point, that's pretty much how I feel about these promised updates to Windows Mobile 6.

  • According to the scuttlebutt on the Cingular "official" thread in the user forums, they are saying BlackJack update within the week, and June 2008 for Treo 750...

    Good god. I bet the June 2008 is the update for compatibility with MSCMDM 2008. They will release the WM6 update sooner. I swear they will. Pinky swear.
    *sigh*
  • This is what I hope as well, but my ATMC Wireless (at&t partner in the county I live in) rep said they got an email 3 days ago saying 6 months to release the update. He carried a 750 on his belt as well so was almost as disappointed as I was. He said it was due to the fact the AT&T uploader caused an "extraordinary" amount of issues and phone brickings in testing.
  • I don't believe June 2008 is an accurate date for the Treo 750 WM6 update. That can't be true. Why was EVERY other carrier with a Treo 750 able to get their WM6 update out? At this point I could care less about the actual update. What I'm fuming over is the way AT&T has totally mis-handled this entire upgrade fiasco by their total lack of communication and disregard for their Treo 750 customers.
