I appreciate “overall system performance improvement” claims for my BlackBerry as long as they are not the result of “memory boosters.” RIM let us know that the latest official OS update to v188.8.131.52 brings system performance updates all around. That means if you have a tour – UPGRADE NOW. If you know somebody with a Torch – share the good news and help them update.
The improvements include:
- Browser – faster page loading and improved panning
- User input – handled more efficiently, improved responsiveness after unlocking device
- Applications – faster launching, exiting and switching
- Home Screen – faster rendering and smoother transitions when switching between panes
- Media – faster rendering of thumbnails in picture application
- Email/Messaging – faster and smoother scrolling in message list and when reading email
- Voice– Software improvements for improved audio quality
You should be able to find the OS updates at one of these two links.
