MidnightDraven 07-01-2009 10:35 AM

JSanders 07-01-2009 10:36 AM

No one knows.. it could roll out slowly for different devices.

Say it with me...
"RIM will release the 5.0 OS for its devices when it determines that the software is ready to be released".

Now, doesn't that make you feel better?

No, it just makes me think of Duke Nukem Forever

Don't know the exact date, but it's set for early Fall right now.

In a lot of ways it will be more down to the carriers, just like we saw a wide range of release dates for 4.5 updates.

LOL

It will be out soon. So far the Beta versions have proven problematic with several apps, and no carrier has even approved of any, so it might not be until the end of summer.

True, but RIM will release it when it's ready... all it takes is for one carrier to release it and we will all have access to a 'released' version of 5.0, regardless of what our individual carriers offer.

LOL... That took 8/9 years ... :cry: (I could probably put every other emotion in here and it would make sense to some)

Not all carriers support all devices though, so there will still be quite a spread of release dates even if people don't want to wait for the approved software of their carrier.

Not for nothing, but is 5.0 really that much of an improvement over 4.6 or 7. There seems little there to get excited over.

MidnightDraven 07-05-2009 02:12 PM

5.0 will come with a newly designed and improve blackberry messenger.
as well as design features like that of the storm.

also new functionality to the calendar and browser with the ability to stream videos within the browser itself. as well as added functions to the maps.

it sounds great! but is likely that the hype far outways what it'll really be like.

skeevecr 07-06-2009 08:38 AM

Simple answer, don't pay attention to the random hype coming from inaccurate blogs that will happily make up any old shit just to keep their hits coming e.g. look at all the stuff about the bold slipping on bgr when the majority of the dates will have been plucked out of thin air.

What? When did StarCraft 2 come out?

JSylvia007 07-10-2009 08:53 PM

Wirelessly posted (Bold 9000 (AT&T))

LOL its not out yet, but it has been officially announced, and I believe that there is a beta available.

NJBlackBerry 07-10-2009 10:29 PM

Officially announced? Where?
