Does anyone have any news re: launch date of OS 4.3 (either beta or final version)?

Because some of the new devices like the 8120, and the 8130 may have 4.3 OS on them. However, upgrades for older devices to 4.3 are nowhere in site yet.

I just switched from the Pearl to the 8320 and my only gripe is the full keyboard. It was so much easier to type on the Pearl. I make just as many mistakes by hitting two keys at once or the wrong key as the Pearl did by guessing the wrong word. I could definitely write a long "dissertation" faster and just as accurate on the Pearl. *Shrugs* I'm not giving it back though. How about this? 8320 sized device with a nice large SureType keyboard! Ahhh......
