    8700 Os 4.2?

    Advertisement



    Is there any talk about when the OS upgrade for the 8700 might be available? There are just too many new features to not be anticipating it. Not the least of which is the ability to finally listem to my unified voicemail messages from my email.

    Thanks.

    it doesn't seem like the 4.2 for the 8700 going to come out until after the release of the 8800. I am as well anticipating the upgrade

    There's lots of talk but that's it. No release dates or anything worthwhile. We don't even know what will be included with 4.2 for the 8700 despite everyone's assumptions that it will magically grant the 8700 the same capabilties of the Pearl.

    There are copies of an offical version of 4.2 for the 8700. We do know what was available in that. The OS had some options the Pearl did not if memory serves.

    N8 posted about it - http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...out_4_2_a.html

    Sadly we do not know when it will be out.

    Re: 8700 Os 4.2?

    My understanding is that OS 4.2 will wash my car, mow my lawn, replace the couple of shingles that fell off my roof, run to the store to get me a six-pack, and shore up the O-line of the Steelers so we can get back to the Super Bowl. If any of those features are not included, I intend to write RIM a very nasty email. :P

    So now that the 8800 is out, think they'll put any effort in a new OS for the 8700?

    Please?
