    Also, just to note, most of the above features have been confirmed, either in whole or partial.

    The only ones unconfirmed would be the myFaves feature and Wireless Software Upgrade Configuration, and they may be simply a subset of something else, or possibly an inactive service with a module loaded on the handheld. In terms of what I know about the myFaves feature, it deals with small images as some sort of selectable icons (labeled female_symbol.png, male_symbol.png, brunette_girl.png, martini.png, etc) and T-Mobile has a module that is called 'Top 5 myFaves' associated with this. I can only make a guess about what it actually is without seeing it, so that's why I went in the direction of community and/or IM technology (or possibly contacts with multiple information field population).

    Re: OS 4.2 - New Features and Functionality Improvements

    Two questions:

    1. Do people think that the OS 4.2 for the 7130/8700 will offer the same multimedia capabilities as the 8100. The engadget photos of the 8100 show a "media" application/

    2. Is there any possibility that 4.2 will allow the sending of a photo, video clip, or audio clip, as an attachments to an email? Currently only pictures can be sent, and then only as an MMS.

    Re: OS 4.2 - New Features and Functionality Improvements

    Just to note, the date has been set for the 8100 on T-Mobile - September 18.

    @Spamdumster,

    1 - Yes. It's going to offer an audio/video player for the 8700 and 7130 devices (at the very least). I don't think that generations prior will be able to support the video functionality, so if OS 4.2 is offered for it (7290 and 7100), it may have some sort of trumped down version of the media player functionality.
    2 - Yes, it does offer this ability for images, atleast. You can send directly from the camera application, or from within the albums. I'm not really sure on audio and video clips, though.

    I will be waiting to see what T-Mobile offers in the 8100 or 7130 series BB they offer.

    They backed off on the 7130g in the United States, although I believe it will see a European release. They are going to release the 8100 on September 18. It will have OS 4.2.0.23. The 7130g will have OS 4.1.0.426 (I believe that is the correct version).

    Jibi, Do you think that this is a possible reason that Cingular has not updated the OS for the 8700 yet?

    If they do release the 8100, it will be a late birthday present to myself.

    I honestly think that their lack of interest in releasing an updated OS reflects quite poorly on their ability to understand needs from their customers, especially their business customers. I doubt this has anything to do with the upcoming release of 4.2, though. Cingular has recently had an issue with the ability to run the OS releases through proper QA channels and release them to its customers. Simply put, there's no excuse - NONE AT ALL - for not releasing an updated OS in almost a year... It doesn't appear, at this point, as if they've even started production preparation for a release (you can usually see this, especially in like-vendor releases, in the Vendor.xml file), as there are no higher versions listed (in the XML file) than 4.1.0.175 for Cingular.

    Thanks, Jibi, I never understood what the vendor.xml had in it. Just followed the instructions and deleted it when ever I needed to update the OS.

    Thanks Again

    I feel Cingular, although has blackberry realeases before most other providers, do not seem to enjoy supporting their users. Look at the lack of Yahoo integrated services (no yahoo messenger service books, no yahoo push email).
