There really isn't that much of a difference from what I've noticed on my 8120 from 4.3. I'd say the only feature new would be HTML email and DocumentsToGo.

Feature list is here: What the BlackBerry Update Means for You

I'm confused...one thread says there is a new OS 4.5 available for the pearl and then in another I see this :

"Please do not post links to illegal beta OS sites... Please read this:
BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community Thanks for understanding.
**thread moved to Beta you than me section**"

So is there a legitimately new OS? If so, where do I download from?

Thanks for clearing this up for me!!
