Verizon Pushes for 9650

Captura on 06-11-2010 15-44-39

As Ronen mentioned yesterday, the update to the newly released BlackBerry Bold 9650 was released today. The release time that we saw was scheduled for around 6 pm EST. Well about a half hour early, I decided to check and see if by chance someone at Big Red pushed the button a bit early…

Well it looks like they did and as of this writing, Verizon Bold users can go to “Options – Advanced Options – Wireless Update” to get this update. As Ronen mentioned, it appears that this release is primarily to add support for Verizon’s Push to Talk functionality and improved SMS capabilities. As usual, no changelog is available, so it’s up to you guys to provide us with any new “features” you come across!

-UPDATE- Well for not adding too many new features that I can see, the update is HUGE. We thought a 1MB update to appworld was big for an OTA download, but this minor update comes in at a whopping 17mb. So if you do not have unlimited data (I’m not sure this is possible on Verizon) or don’t have time to be without your device, I would recommend either doing this update over WiFi or wait for a DM version.
