RIM announced Blackberry 6 yesterday, along with a new device called the Torch, to be released in the US on August 12. Users of some older Blackberry devices will be able to upgrade to the new OS, but unfortunately the upgrade will not be extending too far back in the product line (Bold 9700, Bold 9650, Pearl 3G). A Cnet article has a nice rundown of the new feature, which are no secret, because RIM has been keeping up a steady stream of information and video demos of the new OS for several months.

Plan is to get one once its released in the UK.

Basically the improvements in the OS cover everything that I have thought the BB was lacking on. Social bumpf and poor browser (so bad it cant even post onto OSnews!!!)

I have tried touchscreen phones but cant stand the tactile sensation of hitting glass. This is why I turned to BB in the first place. My 9000 has been a proper workforce and has gained some brand loyalty in the process.

Don't blame the browser - mobile version of osnews is broken that way (posting doesn't work). So you have to open the desktop version.

You can also enable the desktop version from the end of the mobile version webpage.
