just wish there was an estimate on when the update will be released. but i guess, notification that it's at least going to be coming out at some point in the future IS good news!!
I am updating as I type. I hope this is the beginning of some serious support for Windows Phone from Verizon, but I am not holding my breath.
I just started my update as well... at least right now, it's sync'ing content prior to the update.
Update: a day later, but phone is now 8107!
