  • With this release, the media center has been cut down into five separate applications which lets you keep track of everything from one folder. This isn't a removal of feature, more of a re-jig of features into a dedicated place.

    For features which have been found in this leaked new operating system, head over to the article on the iGeneration blog.
  • A new white-on-black search bar has been added to the new version to make it easier and more obvious to search for things, instead of scrolling through every single one to find what you are looking for.

    For features which have been found in this leaked new operating system, head over to the article on the iGeneration blog.
  • A small but useful addition to the pictures folder is the image name and the date it was taken in the bottom-left and bottom-right respectively. This way, you can see which image is the right one of you have taken many over the course of the day.

  • RIM just dosen't get consumers

    I have one of the original BB Pearls (8100). At the time I thought it was the best smartphone on the market, that's why I purchased it. I have been watching RIM to see what they do and I even get excited about what they may come up with next. However, after seeing the Storm fizzle and flop, and the new Storm 2 video, and now the new OS; I have come to believe that RIM just doesn't get the consumer market. Apple did set the bar for the consumer smart phone. Now we see Samsung, Google, and even Microsoft trying to pass the bar. Yet RIM is so focused on the corporate market and trying to get it's corporate phone model to attract the average consumer that they don't appear to ask, "What does the consumer want?", or "How are the consumers using their phones?" Time and time again I have been disappointed by the new Blackberries, not the quality of the phone, but the quality of the experience. I don't like Apple dictating to me how to use my phone or what carrier I can use. That's a trend I wish would stop. But now I am left finding another OS that is at least trying to understand that I am not a company.

  • Still outdated...

    Underneight, it's still an outdated Java Engine processor. Slow, cumbersome and very old. No matter how pretty they make it, you'll still wait and wait and wait to accomplish things that an Windows Mobile or iPhone will do in seconds.

  • Blackberry OS on a Blackberry Storm

    Yea I just tried the new blackberry os on my Storm 9530 and found it to be slow and buggy.
    I must have come across 20 java errors while running this os.
    I know it?s not a stable release yet but I was still expecting an improvement on performance and speed of the java apps...

    I was highly disappointed

    As an ex-employee with VZW I sold many-a-Blackberrys but never owned one while I worked at the company. I purchased a Storm a year ago and it has been a major disappointment. I am just waiting for Verizon Wireless to get the iPhone. If they don't I will wait till my contract is over and get dreaded AT&T coverage and an iPhone to boot. RIM is not at the forefront, Google and Apple are.
