    Any New OS Rumors?

    Seems like it's been kind of quiet lately on the OS front, so I was wondering it there were any new OS rumors flying around. Around the time.148 went public there were rumors of continuing OS work, and I'd certainly like to see improvements in the areas of memory retention, improved accelerometer, BlueTooth, etc.

    Your thoughts/opinions are appreciated!

    The only OS for the Storm I have seen is 5.0.0.92 but it was for the 9500. According to a trusted source, someone did leak 5.0.0.136 (I think that was the OS) for the 9530 but RIM took it down as fast as it went up. So RIM seems to be taking significant steps to prevent any 5.0 leaks. Besides that, Nate is right, it may be sometime until gets out into the wild again.

    Thread cleaned up. Let's keep this on topic. Joking about releases of an OS can easily go downhill fast.

    I heard that Verizon likes to fail every OS and not pass anything. So I don't think we'll be seeing a new OS anytime soon.

    My guess is... With new phones comin
    Out, they want you to spend your money
    And get them. If you get an os that makes
    You happy with your phone, you won't
    Want to buy the latest and greatest!
    What ya think? Wait till the new
    Releases aren't as cool!

    Jason I don't think (or at least hope) that is RIM's strategy. They are facing steep competition from the iPhone, Pre and Googles new phone coming out that they really can't afford any missteps. They are already losing ground in terms of percentage of marketplace. If they botch this Tour release (like they did with the Storm) there will be hell to pay.

    So you think maybe they are putting there
    Time into the tours release to make sure it
    Doesn't flop?
    Although I'm not convinced that what I said
    Doesn't have some truth to it.

    Yeah J, I think they did take their time with this device. According to the reviews I've read, most people are saying really good things about the Tour. One reviewer mentioned a couple of minor bugs with the production OS but nothing really to worry about.

    I have no inside knowledge regarding what RIM does but I sure hope your theory is wrong. With the economy struggling and people barely able to afford their bills, if your theory is true, RIM should be publicly flogged.

    Jl, totally agree with you that RIM has to
    Pull this off. But your theory on economy
    I'm not buyin. If you look at over cell stocks
    Right now and through this "economic crisis"
    People still want and have there gadgets.
    Its one of the few things that haven't died.
    I wish I owned a cell store right now. People are still
    Buying, I think they just haven't seen there "MONALISA"
    They just have to have. Touch screen is cool.
    Seen it. Apps are cool. Got em. See what I'm sayin?

    Exactly! But you know if the conformist groups (I.e.)
    Iphone owners :lmao: really new what they were
    Missing with RIM, they would be gone in a second.
    On countless occasions I've had iphoners try to make
    Fun of my blackberry and I simply showed them
    Things like themes, the fact that I don't have
    To call RIM if I have a problem, I am not
    Tide to only RIM approved apps or approved or RIM
    APPROVED! I think you get my point! Why do I want to be exactly
    The same as everyone else? They do. These are only a few
    Examples of things pointed out that iphoners don't
    Realize. I've converted many people showing them
    How unique they could be. So maybe I'm wrong, maybe RIM
    JUST NEEDS TO MARKET WHAT THEY UNIQUELY HAVE ,BETTER!

    P.s. You might want to move this now.
    And add a poll.
