    BlackBerry Storm Gets Firmware Update

    Advertisement



    informationweek.com: Verizon Wireless is preparing to roll out an over-the-air software update for the touch-screen BlackBerry Storm that should fix multiple bugs and will add a few features.

    The update will be known as 4.7.0.113, and it will be the first major update since December. The Storm was highly anticipated when it was released last November because it promised to marry the robust messaging functionality of a BlackBerry with the large display and multimedia functionality of an iPhone. The device sold well at launch, but it shipped with multiple software glitches, which led to mixed reviews.

    The latest software update is expected to fix numerous bugs, including glitches that would cause the device to freeze when using voice dialing, as well as a bug that caused the display to show small, multicolored dots across the entire screen. The firmware also will bring some improvements and new functionality, including letting users have a full QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode, and boosted speeds when composing messages.

    This is good for your average Storm user who either doesn't know about beta leaks or just won't try them I suppose. For us spoiled users, .113 = <yawn>

    Or the ones just getting the Storm
    And it saving some time by using the phone to DL and install instead of the DM!
