4.3 was NOT renamed 4.5. OS 4.3.1 has been renamed 4.5. The 8120 launches with 4.3.0.x which is still 4.3, the same as the 8110, and the 8130. Going forward, there will be a 4.5 for the 81xx series, but when that launches is anyones guess.

well the 8100 will also get 4.5. the main differences are the WIFI, the external media card slot, and the video recording (the 8120 also has a brighter flash but this is neither here nor there)

the release on o2 said nothing about 4.5. They said there would be a software update available. it is entirely possible that sometime during the month it would be released (or another 4.2/4.3 version will be). The website states April 08, thats the year indicator not the day.

I think that was meant as March 2008 and April 2008. And as Sith said, no guarantees it's for 4.5 and not just another 4.2 or 4.3.0
