    i just want the new OS

    Advertisement



    Found on the 8300.

    The hardware I can live with out (due to the lack of GPS.)

    The OS however, I could certainly benefit from.

    With the addition of full screen video playback- the ability to add and move folders from the homescreen etc.

    I can dig that.

    Any info pointing to a release of the OS found on the 8300? Will it be compatible with the 8800?

    Enlighten me.

    Haven't seen the 8300 yet. For all I know its a pigment in someone's eye. I have seen the hype and the pictures, but it hasn't even been officially announced yet.

    Also the 8800 is running the latest OS - 4.2. Think the Pearl is also. But they won't work on the 8700 and other BBs from what I have heard.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    Everything ......

    OS 4.2 isn't out for your device yet. And as to timing, your guess is as good as anyones right now. Just like the 8300.

    Nope. RIM will release the OS update for the 8800 in good time.

    I hope the new 4.2 comes soon. Heck I've had my 8703 for half a year without the new release to 4.2.

    I hope it has half of what features others in the forum were talking about.
