BlackBerry OS 4.6 features (Browser, iTunes Sync, Alarm, Spell Check)

45 Comments

BlackBerry OS 4.6Who needs OS 4.5 when you can have OS 4.6? Of course, you’re going to have to wait until the BlackBerry Bold is released to get it, but we’re all going to buy one anyways, right?

We’ve got our hands on a top-level feature listing of OS 4.6 (due 2nd half of ’08) and it doesn’t seem to feature anything we didn’t already know about, but it tells us more about what we did. New stuff? Almost too much to name… The BlackBerry Browser will feature increased support of web standards, like AJAX and CSS 2.1, spell check is now continuous (finally!), files can now be downloaded via the browser… you’re just going to check out the pics yourself and tell us what you like the most.

    Does anyone know when this will roll out in the U.K. I’m a relatively new bb user but have been hooked and already looking to upgrade to the next one. Also does anyone know if there is an os sys upgrade for the curve I’m still on os 4.2.

    Will the new OS be compatible with the 8120? I too would like to know when the Bold will be released and the price range.

    I use http://www.doubletwist to sync my iTunes library with my Blackberry. It’s free and it’s really easy.

    That sucks about not being able to upgrade the Curve 8310 to OS 4.6. It could have helped a great device run even better.

    I’ve done a little tweaking to my phone to get things to run better. I’ve got Opera Mini instead of that crappy BB web browser, and it works so much quicker and has better rendering. I also DL’ed Mobiola XPlayer, and it plays videos and music from my SDcard very well; the video resolution and such are on par with watching a movie dirctly from an iPod. I just wish I could use Mobiola XPlayer to watch things from the web, such as YouTube; I’m stuck with BB’s crappy media player.

    I just upgraded in December so I’m not due for an upgrade anytime soon, and I don’t have the $400+ to upgrade to a Bold anyways, so I’m stuck with my Curve for a while. I just wish I knew how to tweak it just a little more…

    Just got the Curve 8330 Inferno. I like it but the media player is crap. Where can I download one that will play a larger selection of videos from You Tube to whatever. Can I upgrade the os from 4.5 to 4.6? New Blackkie
