Default OS 5.0 Almost Here, but how close?

Please Login to Remove!

VERY CLOSE...

First off I am an at&t manager, and today I was visited by my BlackBerry Rep for Colorado. After we had talked about many things I asked the unanswered questions we all want to know...

When will 5.0 be offically released?

My rep told me that she is going through training next week on the OS. which means to her that they are in final beta stages. She predicts a back to school launch of Aug 10-30th...

1 MORE MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not to be rude, but do you know how many times we have heard people who found out something from an AT&T manager or a friend that works for AT&T, and is wrong?

For one thing, AT&T store employees and managers are last to know things from phone manufacturers. And for another, a lot of the misguided information are rumors spread from within the AT&T chain and are usually taken as ... "my manager friend from AT&T heard this."

I'm not saying you are wrong, I'm just saying I don't believe you because the track record of correct rumors heard from a manager or friend working at AT&T is not very good at all.

The latest 5.0 betas saw LOTS of software compatibility problems which make a month release time very hard to believe. Towards the end of summer is more likely.

My guy at AT&T just rolls his eyes when I ask him about 5.0. I guess he's kinda sick and tired of fielding that question. Mid-2010 is his best guess, and it's exactly that - a guess.
