8120 Os 4.6
Does it exist anywhere? at rim's testing staes, with carriers, in he wild or anyone know when it might surface as im looking to upgrade soon and wondering if i wait a little longer, if i can get 4.6 on my 8120, for the javelin over the bold.

There is currently no 4.6 for the 8120, and likely never will be.

There are many updates to the 4.5. 4.6 DOES exist for several models, but may be skipped altogether in favor of 5.0. Personally I think they should proceed with 5.0 and just end 4.6

As Sith mentioned, look for OS 5.0 for the 8000 series devices.

With 4.6 being so close to 5.0, I do not understand why they continue to purse it for the 8xxx series devices. Seems like a waste of manpower and resources to me.

Are you sure they are pursuing it? I hadn't heard anything about the OS for the last-gen devices. It seems like 4.6 will see the light of day with the 9000 and 8220 (and 8210 if it ever sees a release), 4.6.1 on the 8900 and 8930 (assuming that's the model number of Niagara), 4.7 for the 9500 and 9530, and 5.0 for the 8000 series devices. There's very minimal differences from each OS version, from what we have seen thus far, aside from the devices and radios they support.

With OS 5.0 increasing to in the last couple weeks (when was around a couple months ago), if there were other projects for the last-gen 8000 series devices, I would say they are finished by now (or perhaps the 4.6 project was simply renamed to 5.0, although we have known about 5.0 for a long, long time now). Perhaps the most astonishing thing would be that OS 4.5, which is just now becoming readily available through official major carrier channels after a year in development, may not see much in the way of future development (bug fixes, etc).

I had an AT&T RIM rep walk in with an early beta of 4.6 on the 8110 device. It was crap and had little enhancements over 4.5. That was months ago, and since 5.0 has come out since then, they may have indeed scrapped it.

Hum... ok thanks. Will set about hunting a 5.0 line for a bit before facing te upgrade or wait question again.

Sith_Apprentice 10-05-2008 07:48 AM

5.0 is nowhere near ready and its highly unlikely its leaked anywhere on the net

myk.dinis 11-06-2008 09:59 PM

Excuse my ignorance (been outta the loop for a couple months), but does 5.0 have a similar "look and feel" as 4.6 and 4.7?
