    PinStack Week in Review: New Releases, Product Updates and MORE!



    I must admit I was a little bit excited to see RIM making progress towards automatic updates. Reports from the forum show that the system works, but that no updates were available at this time. GSM phones received an update this week to 4.5 from Voda Austrailia and CDMA from Cellular South. If you aren't running 4.5 yet, what are you waiting for? Looking for an official update from ATT? Reports to us are saying it could be a few weeks, maybe close to their Bold launch?

    New Downloads

    Automatic updates?

    Ok I see that RIM is PLANNING on making automatic updates available. That rocks! The current manual process leaves a lot to be desired.

    is will my old apps (like color pearl) work on my 8100 if I upgrade to 4.5?
