I didn’t notice that there was some additional good and bad news attached to RIMs announcement of BlackBerry 6. RIM has specifically called out that the BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Bold 9650, and BlackBerry Pearl 3G will all be getting OS 6.0 “subject to carrier certification restriction in the months ahead.” That loosely translates into many leaks of the OS until AT&T and Verizon finally certify them.
This is really confusing since this really does not break down on the same 256mb vs 512mb we were thinking. It looks like no SureType devices are getting BlackBerry 6 and trackball devices are out too. Why is the BlackBerry Storm2 and the 8500 off this list? Who knows. I can think that maybe there is no trackball support which is why the Tour 9630 was left out but hopefully the BlackBerry 9300 will be getting the 6.0 treatment.
So what do you think of these details? Are you pissed that your device is not getting BlackBerry 6? Or are you happy that your 9700 is going to make the cut?
