I was just hoping for a good browser update - hopefully with the rumored Flash capability. Because, while Opera Mini isn't bad, I'm not totally thrilled with it not having an actual cursor and having it pause ever-so-slightly at every embedded link while scrolling a page. I tried the beta of the next version, but it's cursor snaps to some kind of grid that will sometimes totally skip around a check box making it impossible to click it, for example - those "remember me" option boxes on a sign-in page, making it worthless.

I'm playing on the Bolt 1.5 and liking it pretty well. I'm using full webpages and it's doing good.

Okay, I just tried the new Bolt and I didn't like the really tiny text that's very hard to read on the Pearl. And there's no way to pick at least a slightly larger size. I did like where it's going.

We are still probably a year away from Flash. Maybe it will link with a 5.1 or 5.2 or higher. ????

The benefits of doing such a thing just aren't there though, say they did try to squeeze some of 5.0 onto older devices it wouldn't be good for anyone. People with old hardware would have just complained about the missing new features, people with current hardware would have 5.0 delayed or with less testing and development and rim would have to spend time developing software that wouldn't earn them any money.

Le sigh.

I guess perhaps the 312mhz processor in the Pearl just can't keep up for 5.0 updates.
I imagine a new Pearl will be released to upgrade to their trackpad standard.

On a different note - i bricked my BB doing an os reload - i think i'll jump forums and post the frustration.
