Color of the unit is the only difference! There is NO red or black color OS

Default any idea why there are seperate OS's

Thanks for the reply - so any idea why they have seperate OS updates, one for the RED, Software For BlackBerry Pearl (Red 8100c) BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.89 (Multilanguage), and One for the Black Software For BlackBerry Pearl (Maine Slate 8100c), BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.88 (Multilang)? Have you seen any major differences in the RED vs Black OS? Cheers

the only difference that i noticed was the Cingular theme. it looks more like the Cingular theme from the 8800, rather the one that's on the black pearl.

i was hoping to gain the cursor option that the 8800 has... that's pretty sweet.

@ OP: you missed the entire thread I started.

I'm running it just fine on a T-Mo black Pearl. Followups over there, please.
