Research In Motion’s newest BlackBerry devices, the Pearl and 8800, run on BlackBerry OS 4.2. An upgrade to this platform from version 4.1 is ready to go for the older 8700 and 7310 models, according to an unnamed RIM executive who leaked this and some additional information The Boy Genius. On other mobile news, Nokia today announced the addition of Widgets and Web Run-Time to its S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 smartphone platform (to be released next year).
I have been looking forward to this for quite some time.
Whilst version 4.1, in my experience is very stable it’s definitely lacking in features, especially in the area of dealing with MP3 ringtones (i.e. the really important staff ;-)). I mean, you can download files to the phone but, at present, you’re unable to delete them!
