HTC ToucPro 2 still kicks a$$ even if the WinMo6.5 Update never comes.

The TouchFlo interface is pretty darn good, good enough that you really dont neeed to get under it to mess with windows too often.

If the update never comes the phone would still kick a lot of other phones butts simply due to all the things it can do.
Exchange email compatability. (Droid DOES NOT)

But only email, contacts and calendar items.
It doesnt get subfolders if you have outlook rules running. Basically the Droid is a non business gmail phone.

I have to admit that is one of the things that turned me off of getting the new TP2. I currently own the TP. I could get the phone for a substantial discount due to my employer, but when I read it still was shipping with 6.1 instead of 6.5 and it doesn't have flash for the camera I was a bit turned off. I heard that Sprint is going to release the update, but they always take so long to update their stuff it is really annoying. By the time they come out with 6.5, 7.0 will be out. However if truth be told I am partial to my TP. I really like this phone even with some of its, bugs and idiosyncrasies. The one thing I look forward to when I upgrade is a phone with a loud speaker and ringers. The TP has such a low quality speaker that I could hard...
