This from Boy Genius Reports.....
Warning: This post is merely for the geeks at heart who want just the hint of something new with little to no substance or content worth a penny to anyone, so please don't shoot the pigeon. Fairly reliable sources, courtesy of some semi-[non]-revealing links on BlackBerry.com, seem to indicate that BlackBerry OS 4.3.0 could be on the horizon for most of the newer models of the BlackBerry family. This news is hot off the heels of the concurrent releases of OS versions 4.2.1 (BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry Pearl, BlackBerry 8700, et al) and 4.2.2 (BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry 8830 only, so far).
It will have a Platform version of 2.7.0, where we currently have versions 2.3.0 and 2.4.0 for OS versions 4.2.1 and 4.2.2, respectively. It appears we'll possibly see this OS version released for all of the 64MB+ device models, from the BlackBerry 7130 through the BlackBerry 8120 or BlackBerry Pearl 2 (could be a launch candidate), although none of this can be substantiated. This should pacify some of you for a minute or two. The one deduction that can be made is that OS version 4.2.2 may very well be the last we'll see of the OS 4.2.x family, one of the strongest series from RIM to date. Whether or not we'll get that version (and spell check functionality) with those handhelds that were recently (some are still pending arrival) blessed with OS version 4.2.1 remains to be seen, though.
