There isn't a noticable anything, really, between .90 and any of the .7X versions.

Unless you're having major issues with your current build, I wouldn't salivate too much over this newer version.

My Rogers Blackberry was shipped with version .68. I can't seem to find .90 to download anywhere.

The one thing that I notice is the satellite acquisition is quite slow (almost 2 minutes to acquire the satellite). How is it on version .90??

I am using .90, everything seems to be working ok so far including GPS, takes about 15-20 seconds to acquire.

Default Re: Roger's v.90

Satellite acquisition is blazing fast. Having line of site to the west helps too.
Pulled in 10 sat's in about 15 seconds. Works with bbMaps quite well too. Noticed the travelling speed was dead accurate too when touring in a car. Went down to the lake on the weekend and gave the GPS a good test.
Oh yeah, I love the new keyboard. The fake 8800 that was on display at many vendors last month probably turned off a lot of people. Took a chance and love it!
