Ah sticky. Nice. I've been browsing the web this afternoon and checking forums. Apparently the sprint forum also has a thread discussing the 2.1 update on the Moment and a sprint employee has chimed in and said that the rumors pertaining to the update on Februrary 22nd are ENTIRELY INACCURATE.
Here is what Ken (a sprint employee) has said on the matter:
"The information contained in that link is completely inaccurate. Certainly you are aware of this, no?"
"It's just my opinion but at first glance that's not a very good article. It is well known that we are going to rollout 2.1 for the Moment, so that's not a new revelation. To me the intent of the article is to predict the impending release and I felt I should set the expectation. Many folks have expressed they are confused and they get conflicting information or no information/silence and they have been given promises that go unfulfilled. Just look at the comments following that article from folks who are certainly going to be disappointed even if it has been tagged as unofficial.
Yes, the target date is still 1H2010 and while I don't intend to address all future posts containing future date predictions, I feel it is necessary to disclaim the end of February rumored date. Customers who read that article should not hope that the 2.1 software will be available so please don't call the stores, please don't call Customer Care, please don't call Samsung taking a chance on the software.
Instead, monitor the situation here. This is your best source for data, I promised I would return from time to time with some updates and anyone who believes that know that if the software was that close to launching, I would have posted about it (basically means I am "coming back with an update as we get closer"). So I'm sorry I had to be so strong with my characterization of that article but with the high expectations for this update and I wanted to make sure this didn't go anywhere. No software for neither Moment nor Hero on 2/22, sorry. Please be patient and check back here.
Maybe the anonymous source is thinking the customer download software tool availability, which I'm hoping to have that out next week. It will allow your to upgrade your Momemt to CL14 at home instead of going to the store. Late next week.
Also I have no plans to release version 2.1 for the Moment without this tool. OTA or not? Hasn't be finalised but not likely.
Good point, I need to take time out to meet with the other folks on this forum since I'm new here. I don't think we have said anything vastly different or conflicting but yes, it's a good idea. We probably won't have the same opinion about external sources and external comments across the Internet; sometimes I find it interesting that some posters in other forums post like "Samsung received the software on Friday and they gave it to...." or "Sprint doesn't want....." they are really only guessing but I don't comment on those points. Hope this helps.
Sorry for being so long I really need to shorten my posts. "
They are still sticking to their guns about keeping quiet and releasing it 1H2010, but this rumor has definitely been disproved. Sorry folks!"
Sorry folks! Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope it comes soon!
