    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the site was up quite a while ago but it was closed down because the host was sharing it illegaly. Just wait for the official version. that's if RIM's gonna release it for the 87xx.

    Yesterday (2/21/07) from the BG himslef!

    "it appears that OS 4.2.1 will be released for the Pearl and 8700 by Telefonica Venezuela (4.2.1.106 and 4.2.1.108, respectively) and for the Pearl by TIM (4.2.1.102). I would say these are right around the corner, although no release dates or download links are known at this time."

    Yes, you should be able to use that software.
    If it actually exists.

    I really don't see why people want 4.2 on the 8700? Yes it does give you multi-media capabilites, but with only 64mb of internal memory, with no way of expanding, it seems pretty useless... You'll be able to have like 20 caller id pictures, and the you BB will be running so slow, it won't be worth it. I know we've discussed this, but for some reason, I don't see RIM releasing this. SO, now that we've beaten a dead horse on this subject, let's go discuss the 8800!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~what about that application that narrates your emails and types them as well? Wouldn't that be worth the upgrade on the 8700? I just got mine a week ago and love it!

    All I envision doing with it is listening to streaming AM talk and sports radio via mwebplayer or mfradio... I think that small thing would work well on the 8700c, who knows though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i know I would like to use the new OS jsut because you can easly move pictures over using the desktop manager. Just got my 8700 and love it. I am sure it will be at least a year for the 8800 to show up for verizon. If at all. I like the network but there pda phone selection blows.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Iknow some of us are hoping 4.2 is available soon - then we'd would only be a year or so away from VZW releasing. Hopefully with the GPS unblocked.
