Now here is a little wrench thrown in the BlackBerry Bold 9650 release. Kevin over @CrackBerry got some solid info that the BlackBerry Bold 9650 will be launching with 512mb of memory instead of the now standard 256mb. This is odd because previous prototypes that were leaked and reviewed only had 256mb of memory.
It also looks like the Bold 9650 will launch with OS 5.0 but will be ready for OS 6.0 when it comes out. It will also launch with the WebKit browser which we knew already. Kevin heard some rumors that the BlackBerry Bold 9700 might be the only current device that will get the WebKit upgrade but there is not telling if that will mean it will also get OS 6.0. If anything it could end up like the BlackBerry Bold 9000 which took months to get OS 5.0 even though it was “Ready” for it.
Still its nice to see that RIM is working on speed for upcoming versions. I truly hope they have some news at WES about OS 6.0.
