just an interesting article i came across and thought i would share with you all!!If the evidence we’re seeing now is correct, the upcoming BlackBerry 9000 will launch with OS 4.6.0.*This was previously*hinted*to be*launching with*OS 4.3.2, however*that version will suffer the*similar fate of rebranding like its predecessor, which*was recently*changed*to version 4.5.0.OS 4.6.0 has un-officially graduated from internal development at RIM and has been moved on into the official builds and carrier certification process. This same process started for OS 4.3.1 in the September / October 2007 time frame and we’ve yet to see an announcement of availability from RIM or any carrier. It has been widely reported in forums that the successor*BlackBerry - model number*9000 for those who*are still spreading rumors otherwise -*was plagued with battery drain issues due to the inclusion of Wi-Fi, GPS and 3G, much to the shared chagrin of every other vendor*who can’t seem to*perfect this*flaw with 3G devices. The good news is that the*introduction of the*carrier certification process may*indicate the*remote possibility*that*a workaround and/or resolution has been implemented for the*new does-it-all*device.Only time can tell, but here’s hoping that carrier certification of the BlackBerry 9000 does not take as long as it has for the long-delayed OS 4.3.1 (err, 4.5.0).
