    while, .191 is very solid there are alot of bugs that would prevent it from being released from VZW... its a nice build but nowhere near ready for prime time.. Higher builds are testing that are shaping up to be much more stable and have all the goodies included like tab browsering and BBM5 with the threaded sms as well as other goodies..

    but as I stated.. def nowhere near ready with 191...

    take it from me I sell hot Dogs...:cool2:

    If BIS 2.8 TRULY is going to be released on the 10th of September, and it REQUIRES 5.0 OS, won't the carriers have to release 5.0?

    Sorry if that's an idiotic question, but I'm not only very new to BB's, we're very new to VZW.

    That is a valid question, but is BIS 2.8 really coming in September or is it later? We constantly see dates pushed back or outright dismissed. Either way they cannot afford to cede and more room to the apple upstart.

    I've only seen one mention of a BIS release date of Sep 10 which was on Crackberry. However, it is posted in the "News and Rumors" section.

    I would guess vzw would want everything to work for 5.0. Even if the os is solid many 3rd parties do not work. Prolly have to wait on everyone to update the stuff first before they would think of making it official. Just my thoughts

    But the question has to be asked, IF, RIM puts BIS 2.8 out and Verizon doesn't launch it that means they can't launch OS 5.x which then means they would be behind the other carriers.

    I see it this way RIM needs to get their stuff together and put out a solid 5.0 SDK so developers can be ready. I will say though based on the leaks so far developers should be able to get a better idea (especially with 5.0.1.91) on where RIM is going so they can get ready.

    I won't even comment on a developer that has told me he is waiting for RIM/Verizon to fix the Tours OS so he can update (4) apps of his I use. Well my solution was to buy different developers apps that do work. So why is one developer having issues over another one who isn't. Did they code wrong, get lazy or just don't want to fix something in case it gets broken by the next patch.

    Speaking of which where is the so called update OS 4.7.0.42?

    Cool! Now we need only wait 8 more days and either be typically disappointed or jump for joy.

    Speaking of 5.0 (did I mention that or was it the voices in my head?) I was on with Verizon Tech Support last night due to an issue with my wife's Pearl flip. I asked if they had any idea on a potential release date of 5.0 for Verizon. I was told two things by the Blackberry Technician:

    1. We don't know of an official date at this time
    2. Check crackberry.com & blackberryOS.com for the 5.0 official release

    LMAO by a Verizon tech. Nice. Very nice.

    So, I'm guessing they rely on our site for news? LOL
