os 4-7 jde

UPDATE: In my rush to get this up last night, I forgot to tell you that RIM has started releasing device simulators separate from the JDE again. You can find the OS 4.7 and 7.6 device simulators at the link below:

OS 4.7 and 4.6 device simulator

Our good friend SingStar just tipped us off to the fact that the BlackBerry OS 4.7 JDE and simulator are now available! Hit the link below!

BlackBerry OS 4.7 JDE

My Man SingStar wanted me to point out that the 4.7 JDE features a really slick accelerometer API, so I’m hoping to see some BlackBerry software that rivals anything the iPhone 3G has done!

    Just in time for BBDC! How many free Storm’s you guys think RIM will hand out? Storm will be SO much bigger than Bold!!!

    Word from my friends on the inside indicates that it’s still undecided if the BlackBerry Storm will be given away at BBDC, but considering all the hype they just generated, they’d almost have to now.

    How about getting the US vendors to support/release 4.5 before we get all nuts about 4.7?

    You know why they are hesitant to release 4.5? Because it contains almost all of the features in 4.6/7, meaning curve users would be less hesitant to upgrade to the Javelin/Storm/Bold.

    It’s a shame. People at RIM have had 4.5 since WES.

    Great marketing technique. So I get to DOS era email on my corporate BB WE 8830 for another 15 months until I get new equipment? Fabulous.

    @John:
    Yeah it sucks we don’t have 4.5 yet, but I would argue that email on my 4.2.2 8830 is still better than it is on the alternatives! At least we can copy/paste!

    I carry a BB because I have to. When (and if) I have a choice, I don’t.
