    Advertisement



    Will they totally stop working on our 8100? and focus all thier OS updates on 8120? just curious.

    cause honestly i really dont want it, i want to wait and get something with a bigger screen. but if they just abandon 8100, thatll suck.

    I'd doubt it. I believe I read that OS 4.3 is coming out soon, and that it will work on the Pearl. Not positive, but I do believe that's what I read.

    they will still work on the 8100 firmware updates for example look at 8700 they still do here and there firmware updates on that phone and its 8800 took its place.

    Well, im pretty sure wifi is a feature on the OS that cabn be disabled and able to upload the OS onto the pearl. Somethijng like the PTT function on the Cingular Pearl that can be disabled or enabled. Just my guess, don't quote me on that.

    WiFi is a Hardware issue, if you don't have the WiFi Hardware the software will do you no good. It would be like trying to listen to an ipod without the earbuds.

    OS's are made by RIM and released by the carriers, not every carrier will drop the 8120 and especially not right away.
    You mean the 8100...not 8120...

    i assume just get the curve anyways when tmo releases it.. i hate the tiny screen on my 8100.... but i liked it when i first got it... if it wasnt for the pearl i most likely wouldnt have ever gotten a BB.

    what i was confused about... is i always thought pearl 2 sounded like a joke in my opinion...

    but, i read from several sources that tmobile was releases new pearls but in an assortment of colours. None of these articals said anything about new hardware and software.

    Then i see the write up yesterday on here about a "pearl 2"

    so maybe that simply means Tmo isnt picking it up, atleast right away. which is fine realisticly.

    cause look at the curve. the tmo curve has features that the att curve didnt....

    i could just be talking out of my *** right now...

    Here's the thing rumor has it....TMO will re-release the pearl 1 in different colors.

    It will be quite a while until they get the actual pearl 2

    Thats is what I have been lead to believe.

    Re: With the news of... Pearl "2"

    Ok that makes more sense as far as practicality and marketing goes.

    Cause the fate I'm seeing for the new pearl was Sept 4 and the curve ?rot 24. To me that wasn't sitting right tmo doesn't release many devices at once. In my experiance atleast. I think the most I seen released in a short period was those 2 @home devices and before that, the MDA and the other htc one.

    Plus the idea of a new pearl coming out before the curve felt weird.
