There has been quite a few rumors going around this morning about official OS updates in the pipeline but the most interesting were Al Sacco reporting that AT&T is prepping OS 188.8.131.528 for the Bold and the BoyGenius reporting that Verizon may soon release OS 184.108.40.206 for the Tour. The Tour upgrade makes sense since it is incremental and I hope it helps users with the annoying trackball issues but that may be a hardware issue.
NOTE: It looks like the 220.127.116.118 for the Bold is just the package version and not the app version in my opinion. My guess is it will probably be OS 18.104.22.1682 or .291 in the app version.
The upgrade for AT&T is rumored to be coming August 25th and bring:
- AT&T Visual Voicemail (optional feature)
- General handset software optimization and improvements
- Capability to set the device to "2G only" for better battery life and coverage in some international roaming situations
- Additional VPLs including My-Cast Weather, Wiki Mobile, Mobile Banking, a few games and more.
Now I am only curious as to how much AT&T will try to charge for Visual Voicemail. Anybody want to place some gentleman bets? My guess is $9.95/month for something YouMail will do for free.
