Josep sent over this link to a BlackBerry official knowledge base article showing which device models will be getting OS 5.0 when it is released. I was surprised to see quite a few devices missing from this list so I really hope it is not the final list.
Here it is:
- BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip 8200 series smartphones
- BlackBerry® Curve™ 8330 smartphones
- BlackBerry® Curve™ 8350i smartphones
- BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 smartphones
- BlackBerry® Bold™ 9000 smartphones
- BlackBerry® Storm™ 9500 series smartphones
- BlackBerry® Tour™ 9630 smartphones
Specifically missing from this list is the recently released BlackBerry Curve 8520 along with most of the 83XX series and all of the 81XX and 88XX series devices. Kind of sad that RIM is leaving those out of the bunch but I really cannot believe that the 8520 was left out. That makes me wonder if the 8530 which is coming soon will sport OS 5.0…
What do you think?
