    New 4.2.2 OS coming to 87xx and newer BB's

    Advertisement



    From a reliable source:
    "...I have it in good authority that RIM is releasing the new media player that comes with OS 4.2.2 (comes with the 8300's) not only to the rest of the 8800s, but also to the 8100 & 8700s.

    We asked about storage for the old devices and the RIM guy said people will have to use the onboard memory for older devices. Not sure that's gonna be pretty useful...

    We're already 40-50MB in after the OS, apps and data... You'd have MAYBE 10-20MB of useable storage for music/videos. Ouch!"

    I'd be happy with a stinkin' 4.2 OS for my CDMA 87XX, media player or no!

    All I want the upgraded OS. I don't need to store movies or songs on mine. I really want the ability to play my voice mails. I currently have to get out my laptop and then connect to listen to them.

    I have an 8703e with Alltel. Any ideas when we might see the 4.2. Customer service tells me nothing.

    It's still in internal beta from what I heard last week.
    I've been trying to score a copy from my buddy but I'd rather not jeoparadize his job hehe
    I can't wait nonetheless. The current media player sucks, especially as I use it a lot to play music instead of my ipod.

    I asked my Sprint rep, for my 8703e, and he said not until after July (after the release of their 8830 world phone BlackBerry).
