Thumbs down New Blackberry OS for 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

I read an article on that the blackberry pearl is now available on CDMA networks. The article also mentions the following:

"The 8130 updates the Pearl with new features and new software in the same familiar body. The 8130 is the first Blackberry to launch with a new OS that features a mini-map in the Browser, new font rendering technology, and updated applications including the Inbox".

Will this new blackberry software eventually be available for download on the 8800 series. Specifically the VZW 8830.

Yes, it will eventually be available (OS 4.3) but there is no date in sight yet.

If we will live to see a BB with full internet support, flash and all....that would be nice!
