I took a look at the Blackjack II running WM 6.1 back in July and now everyone can finally update their device to the latest Windows Mobile operating system. Simply visit the Samsung Blackjack II (SGH-i617) update site and follow the instructions to update. Windows Mobile 6.1 is a great improvement on these non-touch screen devices and I recommend every Blackjack II owner update their device.
Some of the most significant upgrades include:
- New Sliding Panel Home screen
- Improved GPS navigation
- Threaded SMS
- Internet Connection Sharing (extremely easy way to tether)
- Voice Command
Thanks to PhoneScoop for the heads-up on the release.
