Luis Merols over at posted this today:

"Well looks like the 8230 has not been forgotten by RIM, I have not heard any talks about the 8230 flip phone in a while with all the upcoming devices taking all the spot light. It seems that the guys over at have found a leak version of OS 5.0 for this device. Am interested to see how this OS handles on the flip BlackBerry."


Now personally im glad that RIM is finally showing the FLIP some love by making a 5.0 for it. but Where's the 5.0 love for the 8220? Its been out for 11 months now and i hope to still use mine and upgrade the OS accordingly for atleast the next year.

RIM, I and other 8220 users are hoping we wont be left out.
