We have a "poll" going as to when, just for the fun of it over here -> When can we expect RIM official release OS 4.7/5.0 for Bold?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
