    why would RIM concentrate on developing an OS for 10% of the market? GSM always get phones and updates first. It's to be expected that they will concentrate on getting GSM updates out, then work on CDMA afterwards.

    My Sprint data contact told me that the 8830 will get the update a month after the release of the 8330...May, around WES?

    Thanks for the info. At least it shed 'some light' on the related matters, especially regarding the most rumored- and talked-about OS..

    I heard the same thing from a Sprint rep, that curve will be coming in april, i thought 4.2 was the last OS update for 8703e models, the new OS is only for Curve and Pearl.

    I am definately on the edge of my seat waiting for this os upgrade. I feel kind of shafted by rim, whatever good thigns come to those who wait and you'll end up with a better product (like gps in the cdma pearl and just being released for gsm)~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Dont you guys know, the cdma carriers like to put little extras on the OS of any phone. Just ask anyone who has used Verizon. Im glad I switched now... At least Ill be at the front of the line for once!
    Ugh, couldnt think of anything to change it to.

    Go back and check his profile, 8310 is GSM, GPS Curve. It's the 8130 that's CDMA Pearl.

    No surprises here. And though its very disappointing news. I have to say at the same time it could be a relief. I mean what if so some unknown reason the new OS upgrade wasn't up to par?! Well of course they would have time to fix all the issues before the CDMA networks have to deal with that! And that's what we call extreme wishful thinking over at the Verizon camp.

    BTW, those of you who have DIGG, why don't you DIGG this and get Pinstack some more coverage?

    BoyGenius, BlackBerryCool, RIMarkable, Crackberry, etc...none of them have posted about some of these features/issues/news, so let's show them which site REALLY has the inside information, because you know they will be posting about this tomorrow and trying to take all the credit...BEAT THEM TO THE PUNCH!
