    Next OS Benefits????

    I have a storm 2, running hybrid OS, and battery life is great, no memory leak. I have to say, I really enjoy my blackberry.

    The home screen icons update, no white bars when in landscape mode.

    I just see that everyone is waiting for the latest OS leak; however, I'm just wondering, what else could others want in an OS.

    I would like to see an improved browser, including tab browser.

    What other improvements do others want to see?

    I think most people would love to see an improved browser as that is probably the biggest thing lacking on BB's. I would also like to see an improved SFI. This will increase the speed of the device as well as providing better reception.

    Yeah, improved browser would be a great Christmas present for me, I hate the browser on the Storm after trying the Eris.

    Okay, I've been sitting on this thought for a while now and need to get it off my chest.... Installing applications on the SD card (or even the Device Memory).

    I know this is something that is not possible right now, but I don't see why RIM can't come up with an idea that would allow this possibility, especially if they don't increase the available space.

    Here is my thought. Just about everyone one of use has an SD card inserted into our BB's. Why can't the OS mate the SD card to our Blackberry with some type of encryption or hash that would only allow the SD card to be used on that Blackberry, unless you format it to be used on another Blackberry? Does that make sense? If not, let me go a little further.

    Example, I have a 16GB SD card in my Storm2. The first time I insert that new card and format it within the OS, it could format the card and use some type of authentication so the Blackberry knows this card is to be used solely to it. That way, RIM can ensure there would be no software (apps) violation possible. I'm not sure that is the issue at hand but it would take care of that concern.

    Yes, SD cards do read a bit slower than the internal memory, but most apps get executed and reside in the Blackberry cache (i'm guessing).

    Is there something I'm missing? This sounds like a means to allow use to gain usage of our SD cards to install apps on. Heck, instead of just adding some time of mating encryption to the card, the format could create a hidden folder with a unknown/unique password to allow the OS to install apps (or allow the option) on the SD card.

    Someone tell me if I'm smoking something here? To me, this sounds plausible!

    Thoughts????

    Short answer: I really like it.

    Longer answer: I have no idea at all if it could be possible, but I have to admit, it does sound plausible to me...hm...ok, who am I, that someone (RIM) would care

    But I really (REALLY) like what you are describing!
    Resistance is futile.

    I know the concept is possible, because I use to do it with my old HP Ipaq. It was a way for me to keep my work associates from using my applications (car ECU/CEM tuning) on my SD card, on there Ipaq.

    So, it's just looking at what is needed (on RIM's side) to make this possible
