Default Should I wait for devices after BB6?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so I am still using my Storm 1 and I am actually very happy with it as time has passed. It's time to upgrade but I am wondering if I should hold out for devices after BB6 comes out. I cannot do without the touch screen so I am thinking about the Storm 2 but will it have any issues running the new OS with its current processor?

Thanks in advance,

We do not know what devices will get OS 6 when its out, except likely the 9650 and all to-be-released devices.

RIM has been pretty secretive about which existing devices will get 6.0. Keep wathcing BBF, if there is any news on this, someone is bound to post something here.

If your device is still operational, might as well wait as OS6 and new devices are due relatively soon.

Yes my device is still very operational...but showing signs of wear and I would like to replace it. I am not up to paying for each new device as it emerges so I am content to be patient I guess.

Thanks,
