OS 5.0 Incremental Feature Updates Detailed!!!

Kevin managed to score some great documentation of the upcoming features in OS 5.0. This is the best list I have seen to date. They are all in images so I will try to summarize the main feature updates below. The main feature that really pisses me off is that there will now be one branded carrier browser which will have a branded bookmark placed at the top of your bookmarks permanently. Thanks RIM!

  • Looks like OS 4.6+ devices are definitely going to get the upgrade
  • Seems to be a bit of confusion as to OS 4.5 devices getting 5.0

  • BIS is going to get a thick client for easy setup of your email accounts
  • Photo resizing when sending via email
