    Why not 5.0

    Agree with your initial post. What's the point of a 4.7 release instead of 5.0. Think they are having problems? You'd think that they'd focus on 5.

    The only reason I can see for this release is apparently something in 5.0 isn't ready (although it doesn't make too much sense, the hardware in the Tour basically matches the Storm). And 4.7.1.61 is later than 4.7.1.57; so at least they can say they fixed the browser vulnerability.

    Very sad IMO. To not have released a 5.0 OS for the tour is just not right. I just am not buying that a OS 5 isn't ready for the device.

    Neither am I. I hate the fact that so many Tour users are sitting and waiting for this update.

    I have to agree with both of you. This is a sad update, I find it very disappointing that VZW would not have pushed this to at least 230 as official. I am aware that it has a couple of quirks but what released os albeit leaked or official doesnt have bugs. I mean for god sake the released the Storm with 65... So imo, any release up to 230 would have been better than what they currently have. I am sure it is something political, either on RIM's or VZW's part. Just my .02 worth....

    I think it may have to do with the tethering from 328 which was supposed to be released the same time as it was for the storm.
