It was included with OS 4.3.0, but I'm very curious as to their plans for that OS family (tentative plans show it's going to be ready for the launch of the 8120), as OS 4.3.1 is now in beta for most of the devices (including the Pearl).

Upgrade.alx (header):

Going by what we already know, it will be transparent to the user for the download. From what I'm seeing here with this device, it will utilize icons for the notification of it's progress (otaicon-download.png, otaicon-new.png, otaicon-ready.png, otaicon-stopped.png). It looks like the files/modules are gzip compressed during the transfer (maybe). Anyhow, that's about all I can dig. Maybe it's already out there - haven't really read up on it too much.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
