Default Storm will be my last BB unless offered OS6

Please Login to Remove!

I have had Blackberrys and upgraded devices since the 7250, if Rim doesn't provie OS6 for the Storm that I bought a year or so ago then I won't continue my relationship with RIM/Blackberry anymore after this one. As much as it pains me to say it, I feel RIM abandoned Storm and Storm2 users so far with OS6 and I will not continue with an organization that has no more loyalty than that. I have been very loyal to RIM in my business but my move to Android or something similar is just around the corner unless RIM provides an upgrade to OS6 or something quite similar to Storm and 2 owners.

So shame on RIM because older devices won't have the hardware to support the latest OS? Technology evolves always has always will! Maybe I should abandon MicroSoft since my PC won't run windows 7

I am sure that RIM is quaking in their boots. Neither has the available memory to support OS 6 in its current state. You might see a "lite" version of OS 6, but I doubt a full version. The Storm 3 will most likely have OS6 or maybe even a follow-on if it is delayed.

I believe this is also a double post, either that or I am having deja vu.

Nope, doesn't look like deja vu...

Ditching Blackberry for Good....

But I was wrong, it isn't a double post, it's a triple post

They think we care if they stay or not, and they also think we're officially associated with RIM. Neither of those are true.
