[9 Apr 2012 | No Comment | ]

The BlackBerry Bold 9650 and Curve 9330 are still around so they need OS update love as well.  It looks like carrier TATA INDICOM has released OS 6.0.0.707 for the Bold 9650 and Curve 9330 today which is a newer build than we’ve seen in the past.  It is an official build, so you can feel a bit more confident installing this bad boy.  Let us know of any changes you notice in this OS.

It was frustrated for some BlackBerry users to see that the PlayBook received a little change in keyboard layout.  This was mainly with the caps key (aA) and symbols key (123 sym) being switched around.  CrackBerry put a side by side comparison of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and BlackBerry Torch 9810, showing that BlackBerry 7 OS gets the same layout as the PlayBook.  We also notice the spaces between the keys are a bit more spaced out and no longer round edged keys.

Surprisingly AT&T has picked up OS 6.0.0.600 officially for the BlackBerry Torch 9800.  We’re used to seeing the OS builds come out way late with AT&T, but they came through well right now bringing a pretty stable OS to the table.  You can download it officially using the link below.

Originally OS 6.0.0.600 was a leaked OS with no carrier attached, and now it looks like carriers are starting to pick it up.  Sprint isn’t the first, but they’ve got it officially available for the BlackBerry Bold 9650.  As far as the leaked builds of .600 go, it seems to work a lot more stable than other builds. So if you have a 9650 on hand, give it a try.

The 2011 leaked roadmap for BlackBerry does infact show that BlackBerry OS 6.1 is due by May.  In yesterday’s RIM Q4 fiscal 2011 earnings call mentioned BlackBerry OS 6.1 being a major upgrade and that it will be officially rolling out this spring.  So we got a glimpse of it in the roadmap, and now the affirmative directly from RIM.

This isn’t huge news, as this 6.0.0.448 has become really popular when it comes to official BlackBerry 6 builds. I personally don’t like it, but I am aware that there’s a crowd out there who only sticks to official releases.  I noticed on my BlackBerry Bold 9780 that OS 6.0.0.448 was officially available to download.  I’m not claiming this just released, but it had to be recent enough as the wireless update got pushed my way.

So check out Wireless Update in your options menu, or click the link below to download directly from T-Mobile USA.

After the BlackBerry webkit browser was hacked the other day at Pwn2Own 2011 on a BlackBerry Torch 9800, RIM was of course in shock, and for that reason recommends to all you Berry users to disable JavaScript in your browser to block vulnerabilities and security threats.  You can read all about it in the BlackBerry Knowledge Base.  I guess it was a big shock for RIM to see their device hacked just like that, especially a BlackBerry 6 OS device.  Time for an “effective immediately” OS update?

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 follows right behind the Torch today as far as leaks go.  This is OS 6.0.0.499 for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the highest version OS leak we’ve seen yet.  I hope we get some more .499’s for other devices as well, but I guess the Bold 9700 deserves it with all the memory leaks its been having with 6.0.  Here’s a few download links to grab a copy from:

First BGR got a hat tip about OS 6.0 being available for T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9700 users.  Then Kal let me know that the update was available when he connected to Desktop Manager.  So it’s currently being pushed out for now, but remains unannounced from T-Mobile as of now.  There is no OTA update in place yet, but I’m sure it will be up momentarily.  Keep your eyes open for it, or just connect your BlackBerry to Desktop Manager to get BlackBerry 6 OS today officially from T-Mobile.
