Is Verizon Gearing Up for a BlackBerry 6 Launch?

verizon software upgrade1 There are tons of BlackBerry Bold 9650 users just waiting for Verizon (or any other carrier for that matter) to officially release a solid build of BlackBerry 6 for their device. The current builds are improving but the battery life is still pretty abysmal from what I hear.

Jason let us know about a little update he noticed that makes me think Verizon is hard at work gearing up for a BlackBerry 6 launch. He was trying to setup his BIS email on his BlackBerry Bold 9650 running leaked OS 6.0.0.280 and was prompted to update to a new Email Setup Application as you can see in these screenshots. I am taking this as a sign that Verizon is working to add BlackBerry 6 support for the 9650 since there is no other current BlackBerry device other than the 9330 which will be getting BlackBerry 6 on Verizon.

  1. wow thats pretty cool……i dont ahev verizon but im curious to see if any aother verizon users are getting this as well

  2. So by this we’re to reason that BlackBerry 6 can update just portions of the OS without having to do a full install? Did I miss that article? That’s a good thing I would say.

    Or is it just that more of what was “core OS” in

  3. Good thing CB didn’t straight steal that screenshot and call it from “James”…
