    E-mail alerts 8330 users of a new update


    (click image to view larger size)



    8330 users were receiving an e-mail that started yesterday, alerting them of a new update for their device. Getting excited about this, users would click to update and low and behold, nothing. Keep in mind that the 8330 is the first generation Curve that is on the carrier that is known to get ALL Blackberry hopes up and then simply crush them, Verizon. So what is this e-mail? Why was it sent not once but twice. Most users received this e-mail more then once at different times. Was it a glitch? Possibly a foreshadow of something to happen? Oh wait, even if there is a 5.0 OS for the 8330 that RIM gives to Verizon, chances of seeing it are pretty damn slim. You would think Verizon would send out an e-mail if there was an OS update. One thing that stands out to me is the copyright in the e-mail. It shows 2008. Even if it said 2009, it would be a bit more believable since its only a few days into 2010, but 2008? That's odd. Also look at the format, it's different then the usual e-mails I receive from Blackberry. Some are saying that this e-mail is referring to Desktop Manager, which I have to disagree on. Maybe RIM is sending out an e-mail in an effort to keep Blackberry customers interested since the majority of their users are running for the Android platforms. Then again an 8330 can not even be compared to any of the Android platforms. The other day I made a post about where the 9650 could be and now images of the dummy phone are appearing in Verizons systems. So maybe after this post, the OS Gods will give the 8330 users a nice 5.0 gift. Then again this is Verizon we are dealing with.

    A 5.0 would be awesome! I've waited for quite some time now. I have the 8330m, so the hybrid 5 would not work on mine. Please OS gods, please help a brotha out!

    Got two messages yesterday. Got excited when I plugged in my Curve and saw I had an update available. Was really dissapointed to see it was just an upgrade to 4.5.0.175.
