    More RIM bashing...

    just wanted to point out that like every online forum has been bashing RIM harshly as of today. they are all saying RIM is breaking their promise to release os 5 before the end of the year.

    jnepsa pointed out to me in one of my earlier posts...

    "the problem will be that RIM will have them available but will the carriers release them. If RIM has released them to the carrier RIM has done what they said."

    just throwing this out here... post your comments/concerns or whatever you feel

    I still feel the same that RIM has more than likely(I DONT KNOW THIS FOR SURE) released 5.0 to carriers for testing but has the carrier decided to release it or not.. If that is the case I dont blame rim at all. I blame the carriers for not keeping up.. just my .02

    i agree totally. im sure RIM didnt think anything about the press release stating OS 5.0 being available before the end of the year, but it has turned into a big pointless ordeal if you ask me

    also hope you dont mind me quoting you on that. ha it was a good thing to point out

    i'm ready for them to be done with all the testing and just release the thing. but there hasn't been a leak for the 8900 in a while, which could be a good thing. maybe they're putting the carrier-based themes and such on the OS to get it ready for official release...
    ...but that's just me hoping for some speed

    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.

    Those all came with 5.0 at the time of their launch...

    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 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

    dont quote me here, but RIM sent the os for testing purposes already for various devices to various carriers, from what i can remember tmobile is testing for the 8900 and att for both the 8900 and the bold 9000, so as some has said here is not on rim ends but on the carriers end...

    On Monday we did see the first official release of a OS v5.0 update. I too believe that RIM has most likely released 5.0 to the carriers and that it is indeed the carriers we are waiting on. We have seen new devices released with 5.0 on it, so it is obviously there. We know it is out there, we have the leaked OSes to prove it. I think people need to get off of RIM's back and realize that there are many impediments RIM has to deal with that is not in their control. I am not saying RIM is perfect, because, like any large organization they too have places where they fall short. But that being said, it seems like since Blackberrys have become so universally popular, RIM has become like a poking target for many people. I am sure that some of it is justified but I also believe a lot if it is people trying to lay blame wherever they can, right or wrong

    In case anybody would like to view this article on the RIM site I just tried and it seems to be currently unavailable. I am not sure if the page is temporarily down or if RIM permanently removed it. Just a FYI and a heads up for everybody.
