Originally, we were expecting to have the OS 5.0 between August, and late September, but as September nears it’s close, it didn’t look like the chances were good.
So Kevin, over at crackberry.com, decided to contact RIM and ask them what was going on. Their reply was-The roll out process has begun for Software 5.0 with the recent beta release of BlackBerry JDE 5.0 (BlackBerry Environment 5.0) to BlackBerry Developer Zone at www.blackberry.com/developers to prepare the BlackBerry developer community for pending device software releases. As can be expected, BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 will follow before the end of the year, as referenced in the “RIM Launches BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0″ press release that was issued at WES 2009 (http://press.rim.com/release.jsp?id=2309).
So, RIM said that they have already begun to release the 5.0 software, and the OS 5.0 can be expected before the end of the year.
Which is good because it’s ABOUT TIME!
I cant wait much longer!
