Will the Storm2 and OS6 Ever Meet?? Verizon doesn't Think So...
Recently I posted a rumor that BlackBerry OS6 was not going to hit CDMA devices until some time next year. This did not make go over well with some of our CDMA users. I know how much that hurt to read and I feel as though you may hate me even more after reading this.
This comes from a Gizmofusion.com reliable source, apparently Storm2 (9550) users will NEVER see OS6 for their device. Its appears that Verizon was testing OS6 on the 9550 Storm2 and has stopped their testing. It seems that the device does not have enough RAM to support OS6 and that is the major problem stopping OS6 from hitting the Storm2.
Don't forget to let us know what you think about this new OS6 development in our forums...
I don't what to think about this. Why would RIM send an OS to Verizon for testing if it knew it wouldn't work?

mfg: The end is nigh! mfg:
This isn´t acceptable. If RIM doesn´t support the 9550 with OS 6... this will be my LAST BB.
256 mb ram should be enough to run the OS 6!!!
Don't believe it
The 9300 has 256Mb of Memory just like the Storm 2 and it will be able to run OS6 based on the platform it will launch with. (6.X as noted earlier, here ).
So I don't think buy the 256Mb is too little RAM excuse. If anything, I think its SurePress that may be the issue.
I guarantee you the touch version of OS6 needs more RAM then the TrackPad version for the 9300!!!!
I'm now pissed. This better be false. I've been a big supporter of Blackberry since i got my first blackberry. I've only had a storm 1 & 2 and loved them both. But to hear the coming of a new OS. I was very excited. After all this android hype I was excited to have an OS that could compete with those devices. By no means do i want to jump ship. I like the blackberry service but RIM has made me sour and feel like a fool. I will no longer brag about RIM nor will I persuade people to get blackberries. I just last week told my bother to get a storm 2. I told RIM is coming out with a new OS and that it was going to be nice. I maybe over exaggerated a bit. but told to go swap it for a droid x because he still had 30 days to exchange it. I feel like an *****. I've lost my confidence in RIM. I have an upgrade waiting on me. i've been holding out for the storm 3. but now it seems i might go to another phone. I want touch screen and I loved the surepress. but with rumors of storm 2 "refresh" device that has OS6 not sure I want to buy the same phone I have now or wait on the storm 3. hope i get impressed by RIM again otherwise ...... well i just hope they surprise me.
If this is true the 9550 will be my last BB. I will get an htc incredible or something similar.
