Josep just let me know about a post on PinStack.com by Banthon. Banthon has been lounging around at the RIM booth at CeBit in Germany and rounded up some interesting info. First he took some screenshots shown below of the new OS 4.5 which he demoed on the 8100, 8300, & 8800 series devices. He claims they will be out and about around the end of April.
He is also confirming that the 9000 series device that we saw on BoyGenius and PinStack before are the real deal. Running OS 4.6 with WiFi, EDGE, & HSDPA in one device. They supposedly also upped the battery capacity to deal with the battery drain of HSDPA.
Banthon is also saying that there will be some serious surprises before and after CES this year. With the 9000 series launching before or sometime during WES. I guess it is about time we start saving up some cash in our piggy bank.
