    Jim Balsillie Says BlackBerry OS 6.1 Is A "Major Upgrade"

    RIM recently announced their Quarter 4 earnings and with that announcement comes word from RIM about what critics and costumers, both old and new, have to look forward to. Well, this spring and upcoming summer brings BlackBerry's covered OS 6.0 with a face lift; 6.1.

    Through the excitement, avid BlackBerry customers often find themselves frustrated at RIM's knack for releasing updates or even devices that are all right and then releasing the newest model saying "this is what it should have been." And if RIM isn't the one saying that, it's certainly its customers. So, with that said, rumor has it that although 6.0 is certainly the best so far, 6.1 is what 6.0 should have been. But don't take my word for it.

    Here's what Business Insider had to say:
    • "The demand in interest in those products is amazing."
    • "It's a very substantial enhancement."
    • "The products this summer have enormous interest, carrier engagement globally is extremely high."
    • Jaws will drop.

    I'm looking forward to what 6.1 has to offer... I haven't even used 6.0 yet!

    The question that begs to be answered is will 6.1 be compatible with current 6.0 BlackBerrys, or is this just a ploy on RIM's behalf in order to boost new device sales.
