I got my hands onto a Curve 8300 with 4.3 OS!

I have the device for sale as well... but just in case anyone wants to see the screen shots and interested in checking out the new 4.3 OS, here you go:

I haven't been able to take all the screenshots yet..but here are some changes that I noticed


The device is on sale here:

Nice! Fingers crossed that 4.3 will work with T-Mobile service books & browsers.

Do you not have a way to download the OS yet? I guess this means the buyer would have to count on not mucking up the 4.3 OS that's in the phone now - at least until a download becomes available from RIM or a carrier...?

If you know of a place to get a copy of 4.3 for the rest of us to try, please share!

Very nice thanks for the screen shots. I see a few small differences from your screen shots, a few graphical fixes in the way an email is composed and a new contact entry screen.

What else do you notice?

What I see from the pics looks like:

- Voice Notes / Recorder
- Playlists in the music player
- Menu choice: short/full as your default
- Slight GUI improvement with options to distinguish SMS/Email when combined

I will still be most interested in seeing:
- T-Mobile browser / svc book compatibility
- snappy performance
- no disappearing icon folders: I'd like to use these!

...and Wireless Update!!!

Is this a straight 8300? (i.e., not 8310 or 8320?)... I also have no reason to own two Curves...but I'll probably upgrade to an 8310 or 8320 soon -- probably 8320, so I can be sure of getting T-Mobile OS upgrades that work with browsers/svc books, get a subsidized price... and I'm starting to think that since a Curve with WiFi and GPS isn't likely soon, I'd rather get the 8320 with WiFi since I can add an external GPS puck and wind up with both functions and still have a nice sleek Curve in my pocket...

btw i noticed that the browser loads pages much much faster. I found a few more minor changes here and there, but nothing major.

The playlist feature is very handy..and I love the UI for Email, Address Book and Tasks

How did you get this device? I like the look of the address book, e-mail and tasks as well.

Please show us a screenshot of the "Connection Manager" from the home screen. (Usually says "Manage Connections" and looks like a little cell tower icon)

Thanks,
