Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

FYI, according to one of Microsoft's press releases today, AT&T announced an update to Windows Mobile 6.1 for the Pantech duo. Hopefully we'll see it in the next month or so.

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

Thanks, Vette.
 
I read that too.
 
I still haven't reflashed the most recent update.
 
Do you think I can skip that and just wait until the WM 6.1 is available?
 
Or will I have to do both?

I think you could skip the current update heck they don't even list what the update is anyway that we have avail now.

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

Where does AT&T post the flash upgrades?  I can't find anything under their support options...
(more to the point, where are they likely to post the 6.1 upgrade when it's available?)

I found the minor 6.0 update on the www.pantechusa.com website.

One of the biggest complaints I've noticed with the Duo is voice quality.  I did the minor upgrade and since I've noticed call quality has gotten much better.  Just my experience -- I think it updated the radio too because 3g is going noticably faster.

Comparison of 6.1 features.  Cut-and-paste would really be cool...

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

Anyone see any information on when the 6.1 release is supposed to be available for the DUO or just that it eventually will be?

We appreciate your interest in this subject.
 
While we have very little information available on Windows Mobile 6.1, we do intend to release this software for the Motorola Q9, Pantech Duo, HTC's AT&T Tilt and the Samsung BlackJack 2. Any inquiries about Windows Mobile 6.1 should be directed to Microsoft's website here:
 
 
Feel free to discuss this further. I will provide additional information when I am able to do so. Thank you.

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

Why do you say:

"Any inquiries about Windows Mobile 6.1 should be directed to Microsoft's website here:"?

The at&t logo in on the phone. You guys talk with Pantech and they have to release the ultimate 6.1 bits that go on the phone. Pantech is in direct contact with Microsoft and at&t has to certify the Duo running the new OS 6.1 before it will be allowed on the GSM network. at&t is also in communication with Microsoft. This just seems to be a "leave us alone and go bug those guys" kind of comment.

Support the product you sell!!! We look to you to provide the answers.

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

triodaved, I have to disagree. I don't expect ATT to have specific Windows answers. I don't expect Microsoft to have specific ATT answers either. As example, many want to be able to change ringtones/message alerts and the Duo is not user friendly for that. I don't expect ATT to know how to get around that, if the phone is working as designed. I expect Pantech to answer that. (And they did) If I was making the decision at ATT, I don't know if I would even endorse an upgrade to a phone unless questions about the upgrade were up to Microsoft/Pantech to answer. If it worked when sold, I wouldn't want to be responsible for changes made by the user.

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

I don't think we're looking for Microsoft answers.  Microsoft has released the software, that question is answered.

The question we need answered is when will AT&T be offering the upgrade for the DUO.  Microsoft's position will be that the software is available, talk to your carrier.

I'm sure Pantech will work to port the software to the DUO - AT&T will have better insight in to that process than we, as consumers, will.  AT&T will likely customize even further, by adding applications and other features.

Do the moderators generally give us information as things like this develop, or do we just have to wait and then one day, without notice, we'll find the code available on the site?

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

Wow, I cannot believe this. I am all over the internet trying to figure out how in world I update my Duo to WM 6.1 only to come back here and find out it's not even out yet for the Duo! Smiley Mad

If Microsoft has already released the software, what exactly does AT&T need to do to it before they release an update for it? And why exactly does it take so long?
