All of you CDMA users realize that Verizon and Sprint are the last to receive any OS update love. So it was nice when one of our readers, Paul, dropped me a tip that they have update their OS on 5/30/2008. The new features in the latest OS are miniscule but still nice to see:
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce new software enhancements for your BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition smartphone. The RIM® OS
v126.96.36.199 (Platform 188.8.131.52) update includes the latest feature improvements for your device.

• Provides support for 2 GB and 8 GB microSD cards.

connected to a GSM network.
