    I honestly think they have kept good on their promise on 5.0... there are what 3 devices out with 5.0 9700 8530 and 9550/9520correct me if I am wrong (and please provide a qoute) but I don't recall them saying that before end year 2009 that all the 5.0 for the list of devices provided would have an official 5.0 upgrade.

    It was a press release I dont have the link handy that there was a list of phones that would have 5.0 before the end of year but as I said before RIM did release them its the carriers we are waiting on

    I think this article says it all with respect to OS 5.0

    I wish the official statement from RIM was still on the website, I really don't remember reading that they confirmed that devices will all get by the end of the year or if they said they would start releasing for the fallowing product (insert list here).I really don't recall the promise of all devices listed will have it I swear I remember reading 5.0 will be here before end year... and well it is offficially here as 3 devices as stated above do have 5.0 loaded and running officially.oh well. who cares I have 5.0 officially on my S2 so I am more then happy... someone leak the s3 test firmware!!!
    for our record the knowledge base article was KB17984 but its gone so thats useless.

    RIM can deliver the product to the carrier, and that's all they can do. If the product is up to snuff, and unless the carrier wants something stupid...it's released. Otherwise, RIM is at their mercy just as we are. Maybe we should direct these concerns to the carriers. Call customer service and tech support.

    The article we posted about RIM listing the devices has a screen shot of the document.

    Screen shot makes no mention of end of '09 release. for specific devices....none the less. Rim has made good on the promise there are a few devices that run official 5.0 and 1 old device that has had 2 5.0 releases from carriers
