    RIM: 8700C and 7130C Soon To Offer PTT/4.2 OS

    Advertisement



    While at an RIM/Cingular sponsored event this morning, the following statement was made by RIM Regional Sales Manager Jason Morris:

    "Many Cingular customers have asked "There is a button on the left hand side of the 7130C and 8700C devices. Can't those be used for Push To Talk also? Yes they can, and the 7130 and 8700 devices on Cingular soon will be able to use the Push To Talk feature when the 4.2 Operating System is released".

    Of course, he would not give a date when said operating system is to be expected.

    Is this the only feature of the 4.2 software worth looking at? Do we have a list of features somewhere for other improvements with the upgrade?

    Media player and some minor UI things are about it, seeing camera and removeable storage aren't controlled by OS. But it will def be worth the OS upgrade!

    Does this OS have the habit on the press of the thumbwheel of a small menu showing up and another press required to show the full menu? I found this annoying on the pearl.

    How much space in mb will upgrading to this os take up approximately from your experience mistadobolin?

    Thanks.

    Use the Menu button (to the left of the trackball) to open full menus on the Pearl and 8800. The short menu is a shortcut to not having to open the full menu.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately I have not had any experience with the 4.2 OS. I am not one of the lucky stackers who were able to get ahold of the download.
