    Another Confirmation for .113 and Verizon

    Our last confirmation that Verizon Wireless was releasing an OS was a few weeks back when blackberry users were able to view the change log. Well, another confirmation for this release is out. This time by InformationWeek.com.



    "Verizon Wireless is preparing to roll out an over-the-air software update for the touch-screen BlackBerry Storm that should fix multiple bugs and will add a few features.

    The update will be known as 4.7.0.113, and it will be the first major update since December. The Storm was highly anticipated when it was released last November because it promised to marry the robust messaging functionality of a BlackBerry with the large display and multimedia functionality of an iPhone. The device sold well at launch, but it shipped with multiple software glitches, which led to mixed reviews.

    The latest software update is expected to fix numerous bugs, including glitches that would cause the device to freeze when using voice dialing, as well as a bug that caused the display to show small, multicolored dots across the entire screen. The firmware also will bring some improvements and new functionality, including letting users have a full QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode, and boosted speeds when composing messages.
    Verizon didn't say when the update would be pushed out, but it should be within the next few weeks. Adventurous users can find, download, and install the full 4.7.0.113 software build from various BlackBerry forums, but there's no guarantee it will operate properly.
    Storm fans may be a little jealous that its firmware is not as robust as the iPhone 3.0 software, but it took Apple about a year to provide a major update for its mobile platform. It's unclear if Research In Motion (NSDQ: RIMM) will employ a similar strategy of releasing major software updates, or if it will place a stronger emphasis on new hardware. "

    Its been known that Verizon was going to be releasing .113 as their next Official release. Question is when? This is just another write up confirming that it will be happening but like everything else with VZW, still don't know when.

    You really think it's going to be .113? I'm running the leaked .113 on my Storm now, and it is definitely superior to .75, but really thought we'd see something more when the "official" OS came out.

    Verizon update...pfffft. LMAO I'll just keep coming back there to get my updates. Think about it...if it weren't for you guys on here and CB, we'd all STILL be running on .75! Unbelievable.

    Sorry...just had to vent a bit. I'm good now. LOL.

    You have to remember and look at like this. Verizon assumes everyone is on .75 so .113 would be a huge improvement and would make everyone a lot happier. Now for the rest of us who have been trying every new leak under the sun, this is a huge step backwards.
