HTC Offering Free WM6 Upgrades to Carriers in June

Italian Language site solopalmeri (opens in new tab) had an enterprising user in the forums find this HTC Europe FAQ (PDF) detailing their plans regarding Windows Mobile 6. The short of it is that HTC is making upgrades free for the following devices:

HTC AdvantageHTC TyTNHTC S620HTC P4350HTC P3300

The bad news is it's still up to the carriers in Europe to decide to offer them. Those who have purchased these devices direct from HTC will be able to get the upgrades, free, sometime in June. No word yet on what will make it over to the US (besides the already announced T-Mobile Dash, Treo 750, Cingular 8525, and Samsung Blackjack upgrades), but it looks good. If HTC is willing to do the legwork, I don't think it's too much to ask for carriers here to give us the update.

  • I can't wait to try out Windows Mobile 6, hell I cant wait to get my 8525. From the video clips I have seen of WM6 it looks really promising, though a bit evolutionary and not really revolutionary (still cant wait though)!!!
  • This site has a step by step guide to update the HTC P3300 with the official WM6 ROM.
    It also has some tweaks such as disabling the application lock and enabling the VoIP features.
