T-Mobile US OS 7.1.0.284 for BlackBerry Bold 9900 & Torch 9810 in Beta Zone (Wi-Fi Calling!)

betazone-2012-03-05

It is unusual for the BlackBerry Beta Zone to beat out OS leaks but OS 7.1.0.284 has just been released by RIM in the Beta Zone. T-Mobile USA just put out an In Market beta of OS 7.1.0.284 for both the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry Torch 9810. I always thought that RIM should be doing this way more often and essentially replace leaked OSs with official betas.

According to the post in the Beta Zone BlackBerry 7.1 features include:

  • Mobile Hot Spots
  • WiFi Calling
  • BlackBerry Tag (NFC Peer to Peer)*
  • Universal Search Web Engine

*Only on 9900 Devices. Currently Disabled by TMO. Keep you posted on availability. You must have backdoor version PCB-39532-006 which contains the NFC antenna to use Tag and other NFC features. The PCB version is printed on the back of the BlackBerry door

Check out the beta available in the Beta Zone. Thanks Tashanna and Derek for the tip!

    “I always thought that RIM should be doing this way more often and essentially replace leaked OSs with official betas.”…..

    This is why the leaks are so popular…. After registering on betazone, going through a couple of gigantic legal document (which I doubt anyone has ever read), filling out a user profile with 5+ tabs on it, and joining two beta communities, I then discovered that I now had access to… pretty much nothing but a discussion forum. Not a download to be seen in either the Blackberry beta zone or the Playbook community.

    Sigh…

    RIM seems to have a unique ability (well them, IBM, and Oracle too) to make it so hard to accomplish so little.
