BTW...i forgot about the camera..
it's the quickest i've ever seen my storm do, it's not too loud (i dont know what kind of problems others are having)
i havent tested the flash yet at night...so i dunno if that's gonna be slower or not...will let you all know...
3G is working fantastic as well..
3.4.something is working quick as well...better than previous OS's...
i dont think this OS can get any better....otherthan BBM5....C'MON RIM...we know you can hear us....
well...i dunno if i needed my glasses before or not but it's not working the same way as i explained it did...
when i go to my gmail account icon and hold down the BB button to switch apps it calls it enhanced GmailTM Plug-in...not my typical @gmail.com address...
but even if you close it through the menu it still stays on there...sort of like an app...but there's not messages in there.....
It is separate from your messages, and it is slower push to your device.
from a news article:
.....there are some issues when integrating BB & gmail.....
The install process involves deleting the Gmail account on your BlackBerry and re-adding it. You can do this by following the links at blackberry.com/gmail, or you can do it by logging into your BIS account and deleting and then re-adding it manually.
After that you’ll receive an email prompting you to download it. The link is the same: blackberry.com/gmail. Click the Download button there and you’ll go through the process. That will place a Gmail icon in your Applications
Menu. This is where you have to access the plugin — you cannot access features like archiving and marking as spam through your normal Messages
So in closing, it will be in your program running list since it is always running.
Been running this OS for about 24h now. And to me it's an absolute delight to watch and experience this OS on my BB.
I was very ecstatic about the SuperHybrid already, but this one is even better. Especially the flick scrolling really works now EXCEPT when scrolling through my ringtones. It's still pretty choppy in there.
+ Boot time is about 30 sec faster, than before with the hybrid
+ Threaded SMS is really fun.
+ My Apps are all working, except QuickPull (BerryBuzz, PatternLock, Viigo, GoogleMaps in all positions)
+ Browser is faster and showing from the beginning
+ Better Usability of Email, SMS, etc. (no BB-button->Send anymore)
+ FlickScrolling even with the clock!
+ Overall snappier and it really feels like a mature OS now
+ Volume with Media Player and Alerts is remarkably louder, was quite a shock, when I got my first call...(but no problem, can be adjusted)
- Memory after reboot slightly lower with same apps, etc. (before .216 about 42MB, now 39MB) but I can live with it, since it's stable
- Radio seems a bit weaker
- Cannot access all settings in 'Sounds and Ringtones' anymore, only phone settings
- BBM5 not working, but I can survive for a while with BBM 4.7
Will definitely stay with this at the moment until something better is coming along!

i have noticed that my QuickPull is finding an error when i try to use it...so it's out of the equation....
my radio is actually stronger and i havent had any random reboots during calls like 140....so far im really happy with it and cant stop flick scrolling...its quite sad really...but yeah...
we'll keep in touch....
