    Can't wait for it to drop (or at least the fixes/changes sheet). I'm actually pretty excited for the new BBM to drop since you can apparently integrate individual contact into it for threaded SMS. I like how BBM is setup a lot more than I do the current threaded SMS. The current threaded is definitely nicer than the old style with tons of messages everywhere, but BBM just pulls it off so much better.

    Now now! Let's not be*too* mean to Verizon. The initial .75 OS was clearly rushed, and it nearly ruined the Storm as a viable consumer device. They can't afford to have an official release have *any* major bugs.

    Plus there are still loads of third-party apps that don't work on any 5.0 to date. What's gonna happen when the update goes out and somebody's grandmother can't use her cross stitching app(or whatever)? Frankly, I'm a little shocked that they would bother to even *think* about releasing a 5.0 OS for that reason alone. Pleased, but shocked.

    Now, the perfect solution would be if they would just leak it to US... We won't mind a few bugs to play with a potential official 5.0 release, now would we? Verizon? You listening! Seriously. C'mon... Please?
    ...
    Plus, what would happen if it got into the hands of all the hybrid builders around here...

    I'm frankly a bit shocked that someone would consider 3rd party app incompatibility to be a good reason to hold back an OS launch, assuming the OS is otherwise ready. It is 100% up to the app developers to release compatible versions. But it is NOT a good reason to hold back an OS.

    Consider the main reason I say this: RIM is PUSHING for an across-the-board release of 5.0 - many enterprise customers are now on BES 5.0; and without a 5.0 OS on the device; many of the new features cannot be taken advantage of. RIM wants 5.0 out, they are NOT going to hold back waiting for Joe Programmer to release his latest version of "Super Icon Hockey"

    And frankly, if 5.0-native devices are set to launch sometime soon, i'd say it's high time Verizon gets to testing (and passing) a 5.0 build.

    We all know how slow Vzw is about software releases.
    Yeah, if it went into testing on Monday; and assuming it doesn't end up failing at some point; it will probably mean almost a month of testing before it could potentially see a release. The way RIM is pushing 5.0; it'd surprise me if we DIDN'T see a 5.0 release become official by the end of November, though - as RIM has stated that 5.0 WILL be released by year's end. This is just me thinking in the back of my mind; but with the amount of people likely taking time off from work for the holidays (speaking about RIM/Verizon employees) they'd probably want to have something finalized BEFORE December begins.

    Again, that's just me thinking out loud; but I KNOW that where I work, they like to have major projects DONE before the holidays..... And i'd consider a device-wide rollout of a new OS to be a MAJOR project.
