    Official 113 this Monday?

    So this is what I was able to get off email communication with a RIM employee... The most solid information to date released right here on BBOS



    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting BlackBerry Application Development Support.
    In response to your recent email regarding the official OS release, I would be happy to assist you. We are aware of the fact that there has been a leak of a beta version of the 113 OS. The version that someone has made available to the public, is an internal beta version of the product that has not been approved for external release. Thus, there is a potential for known bugs within this version. We are aware of one major source of the software's availability, but if you would like to share where you obtained it from we would appreciate the information . The OS is meant to be release Monday april 6th 2009. As I informed you, many bugs pertain to the leaked OS and will be resolved in the final production to be released this Monday. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
    Sincerely,

    I can't imagine it would be 113 then...if they are saying that it has bugs, which it does, and they will release official on monday, then it will be a different build.

    If this is true that is the way the releases work.

    If 113 is used to make changes then it will be a different build number.

    I know, I thought the same thing and replied to him, but havent gotten a response.
    But from what I understand...the one that was leaked had bugs and the official actually remedies them.
    Im even surprised the guy actually told me all that.

    I dont know

    Isnt the leak the same as the official ( when it goes official ) VZW doesnt change anything in the OS , so if he is saying there are known bugs in .113 maybe they are going with a di\fferent version ?

    Tell him we got it from a RIM employee

    I have a tough time believing this because RIM does not release software VZW does. So the fact that he says RIM will be releasing it on 4/6 doesn't make any sense. For example, 4.5 has been out for a long time now but VZW still does not offer or support it. So until I see it posted I ain't buying it.

    I think he more interested in finding out the source of the leak than providing useful info. History has mandated that every leak that has gone official are identical. Since RIM is now testing in .18X tell me why would they be going back and make tweaks to an OS 70 versions again. Just tell me when the check has cleared and I'll believe it.

    Hmm. Very interesting news. We will just have to wait and see. I just dont think the number will be .113 if the bugs were ironed out.

    You guys are talking about rumors now to get chips.... I know you are

    But seriously, would they remake and fix bugs within an os version without changing the version number? anybody know
