Blackberry Tour 9630 {RIM Official OS 5.0}*Info*

RIM has started process in rolling out the official OS 5.0 updates to compatible device. We all heard of the update release for verizon storm 9530 was last monday. Many believe that the Tour will receive it update within the up coming week. I just thought i would drop a line of hope for the folks who opted not to go leaked. Also for the one did, nothing wrong with it, but its not like you need my approval...lol

here the link to info on official updates within RIM OS 5.0....

I will find the link with the supported device model. Yes the 9630 was among the group. If I'm not mistaking it was about 8 devices on the list maybe less. Btw I found the link on crackberry.com it was official, its on blackberry.com somewhere.

Been running a Hybrid .238 for awhile and a week ago downloaded a hybrid .287. Works sweet even Sprint TeleNav works on .287.

Re: Blackberry Tour 9630 {RIM Official OS 5.0}*Info*

I think the info in this artical was from an internal KB so i can't post the official RIM link but here is the imformation he was refering to.

This came from crackberry.com


Supported BlackBerry Smartphones with BlackBerry Device Software 5.0
  • BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8200 series smartphones
  • BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphones
  • BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphones
  • BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphones
  • BlackBerry Bold 9000 smartphones
  • BlackBerry Storm 9500 series smartphones
  • BlackBerry Tour 9630 smartphones
So what was the ulimate kill point? Memory. According to the article:
In order to optimize the BlackBerry smartphone user experience with BlackBerry Device Software 5.0, BlackBerry smartphones must have more than 64MB of memory to support this version of BlackBerry Device Software. BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 is targeted to be supported by Research In Motion on the above noted BlackBerry smartphones.

In the case of the BlackBerry Curve 8330, it looks like having to wait a year to get the device after the Curve was originally released paid off. The Curve 8330 has 96MB of flash memory vs. 64 in the Curve 8300, 8310, 8320. I could see it being easy to get mad if you currently are using a BlackBerry that won't get the update (especially if you recently picked up a Curve 8310/8320), but really, it just doesn't make sense to upgrade to something that'll bog your device down. At least the Bold 9700 and Storm2 are just around the corner if you're thinking it's time for an upgrade.
** It seems the new BlackBerry Curve 8520 is missing from the list above. It will for sure get the OS 5.0 update as well - they must have left it off by accident. But once there's one mistake... who knows. **

Re: Blackberry Tour 9630 {RIM Official OS 5.0}*Info*

yeah, i've been running .230 since the day after i got it a few weeks ago, and its been running really well. only a few problems with the threaded messaging going from contact list -> sms, or trying to call somebody from the threaded sms. and a tiny bit of freezing every now and then when viewing pictures. that's it though, which is fine enough for me cause there's ways around all of that.
