The Focus is a great phone - OEM firmware issues felaying updates aside. Best phone I have ever had (and WP7 kicks butt!). As for waiting, here's some of my thoughts:

- Mango will be pushed to every current phone.
- Mango brings even more speed improvements to OS than NoDo.
- It will take some time for apps to appear using Gyro and extra H/ware features.
- Prices are excellent now on GEN1 hardware.
- GEN 2 Handsets shd appear at lower Day 1 price points than GEN 1 did (Nokia shd help this even more).
- Mango could arrive as soon as AUG (weeks).
- Mango based on beta reports is fantastic.
- Dual-core is not a major issue for MS yet - the OS is already fast on old GEN1 specs.

You may have to make a call on featureset you are after (camera size, front facing, Nokia services - Fujitsu waterproof - Samsunf memory exp etc.) and how long you want to wait.

As others have said, 12m rates are good, then you call the handset and look at mid 2012 later GEN handsets as Apollo approaches

Good Luck.
