    I would say: NEVER.

    With the impending release of the 8800, there is no need for RIM to give away software for free which would undermine sales of a new device.

    Stop waiting for free software and start saving for a new BlackBerry.

    I agree Lewis, the longer they put it off the more it seems like it wont be released after all.

    I'm not sure about that line of reasoning. With that sort of thinking, 4.1 would never have been released for the 7290's. I think the bigger issue is that the 8700 won't really be able to take advantage of the newer features in 4.2.

    Rim has already made a version 4.2 for the 87xx and it is currently in testing. I am 100% sure of this and know first hand of this. That is ALL I am going to say. NDAs are a mofo.

    Thanks for the info and I'll start saving. Seems like I'll have a while to do so.
