Default Re: Latest OS: 9700 (All Languages)

I did the upgrade on friday. Here are some of my observations on this

- OS is stable but eats up more memory. With OS5 I have 55mb memory but in OS 6 my memory starts at 42mb but degrades fast and I've had to do a battery pull and delete applications three times already.

- A little slow scrolling down for more icons using the trackpad

- Very responsive moving side to side into the different pages

- Different menus take a while to get used to. OS 5 and before it was easy to get to options etc. This is like a new language and take a bit to get used to

- I like the universal search and the fact you can get to battery, WI FI, Bluetooth quickly.

- Webkit browser much faster than I expected which was a pleasant suprise

- Facebook works well with OS6 rather than OS5

Overall decent but I would say for the 9700 - not enough memory and speed to run this. Perhaps the 9780 is doing better i'm not sure.

I would say test it out first before you think its for you.
