DavidB let me know that the BlackBerry Bold has been awarded Telstra Australia’s “Blue Tick” which recommends devices for handheld use in metro, rural and regional areas. They claim it is because:
Telstra Product Management, Executive Director, Ross Fielding, said Telstra worked with Research In Motion (RIM) to develop a software upgrade that boosted the device’s coverage performance.
If you take a quick gander at Telstra’s device software download website you will see they have upgraded the Bold to OS 22.214.171.1242. My guess is that the upgrade is the reason for the new rating. This makes me wonder why AT&T has yet to release the same OS version! AT&T is still sitting with the dated/crappy 126.96.36.199.
So what are you waiting for? Get your “Blue Tick” on and download OS 188.8.131.522!
