Well it is all about how you translate today but Alec Saunders of RIM has confirmed that the BlackBerry 7.1 SDK will be going gold today. They are in Singapore so today may mean the next 24 hours but still that means it is coming out of beta. That is nice to see before the OS actually ships. Now we can only hope that carriers are getting their act together and releasing these 7.1 OS builds starting this month!
