    A few points of view:

    If OS 5.0 were to available for users just by buying the new devices why then build it for devices already released?

    Now going to the topic of this thread, there several reasons to make the apps work on 5.0, all of them already mentioned here, which lead me to the following explanation one by one:

    BIS 2.8: will include new features compatible with OS 5.0 only, but it will keep those necessary features to work with older devices with some limitations for them.
    OS 5.0 Release: it was announced by RIM that it will go official before the end of this year, so they're just getting ready, making the apps compatible with 5.0 will give them some feedback to have them ready by the release date.
    New devices release: new devices are to be delivered with OS 5.0 so make a lot of sense making the apps compatible with that OS.
    And finally seems like RIM is taking advantage of the already leaked OS and have gotten many bug figured as a consequence of that, plus, we the end user, are the best guineas pig they got to test, brick the phone and they're not responsible of that since you're installing a non official OS.
    That is my opinion only

    BTW November is really close.

    I think the launch of the Storm 2 is driving these updates. We all know it is being released with a 5.0 OS. Just a prelude for the rest of the devices that will upgrade. When phones that on 4.7 do an OTA upgrade to 5.0, they will need the current apps on the phone to already be compatible with 5.0. If you don't upgrade your IM clients then upgrade to 5.0, they disappear. So you have to make sure everyone has time to get those apps upgraded prior to the OS upgrade.

    I think BBM 5.0 for 5.0 OS is going to be the next thing released by RIM. Just wait and see.
