    4.6.0.508 for the Blackberry 9000


    So many of us saw yesterday that it appears the Tour will be getting some love with an OS upgrade soon, and then today we find out that the Bold will be getting some love as well! 4.6.0.508 will be the next official OS for the Blackberry Bold, and it appears to offer some pretty great features for those Bold owners.

    Over at CIO they were lucky enough to get an excerpt from a corporate customer who was notified of the update.

    "AT&T has approved the BlackBerry Bold Maintenance Release (v4.6.0.508). This release, which provides several enhancements, will become publically available on August 25, 2009 including via OTA.

    What's New / What's Changed / What's Launched
    A number of enhancements are contained in the Maintenance Release including:
    AT&T Visual Voicemail (optional feature)

    General handset software optimization and improvements

    Capability to set the device to "2G only" for better battery life and coverage in some international roaming situations

    Additional VPLs including My-Cast Weather, Wiki Mobile, Mobile Banking, a few games and more.

    The Maintenance Release will be available to customers to download from August 25, 2009 and will be available from www.att.com/bbdownloads."

    *quoted from CIO


    While the email received is showing a release date of the 25th, this could be for the corporate users, and it may take a bit longer before the average Blackberry user gets the update, but it is on the way!

    I think this is decieving. Over at Crackberry they are reporting that 4.6.0.297 is the latest known build. 4.6.0.508 is a little hard to believe.

    I may be getting the numbers mixed up though. Isn't the MR version number and the application version number different. That might explain the huge difference between .297 and .508

    I am willing to bet, as much as I would like to see that version, that is the application package nunber.

    Ditto. That number doesn't sound right for application version.

    Welcome to BlackberryOS. It is extremely unlikely any OS below 5.0 will include BBM 5.0.

    still no update
    We pull batteries, swap bezels, break contracts, and stay up all night. We change OSes like we change underwear. If our phones could make us fly, we still wouldn't be satisfied. We're cut from a different cloth. A better breed. We are BlackBerry.
