    Blackberry upgrade question

    Advertisement



    I was wondering, and this may be kind of a stupid question but when the newer blackberries come out or the 4.2 comes out will the owners of the 8700 get to upgrade to get this package or since it is a newer phone it will only be available with the newer models. I would love to have a media player on the 8700g, but I am thinking that won't be able to handle the capacity. And I really don't want to buy an new phone just for a media player, I don't want a sidekick, but it would be a killer addition.

    4.2 is suppose to be avaialbe for 8700 soon but expect it to be slower and don'T expect to have more than 5-10 mp3 on it... If you really want a media player, forget the sidekick and go for a 8100

    I already own the 8700g and I guess I would have to speak with my service provider to get the 8100, I don't want to spend another 300 dollars on a phone and I doubt I can exchange or pay the difference. I just wanted to know it the new 4.2 would be available for the 8700g.

    Cool thanks, do you know what the 4.2 will cost, or what the upgrades will entail. I would love to know cause I don't want to get a new phone I like my 8700g. It has all I need.

    The other problem about 4.2 on an 8700 is that RIM hasn't really provided any information on what features will be activated/activatable on this device. Everything we have seen has just been educated speculation, albeit based on knowledgeble investigation.
