Back at WES 2009, RIM put out a statement saying that OS 5, “will follow before the end of the year.” Most of us in the BlackBerry Nation have been expecting this software to launch around this time and we’re all wondering where it is.

While the software will be coming out with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the Storm 2 9550/9520, it isn’t clear when older BlackBerry devices will be privy to the upgrade.

At the very least, we know you won’t have to wait longer than January 1st, 2010.

The official statement from RIM is as follows:

“The roll out process has begun for BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 with the recent beta release of BlackBerry JDE 5.0 (BlackBerry Java Development 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).”

Just out of curiosity, what device do you have and what OS are you currently running?

    I have the Curve 8310 and am running 4.5.0.161 Any chance that OS 5.0 will be released for this Berry?

    I’ve got a Curve 8310 and I’m running OS 4.5.
    I’d love to be able to upgrade the OS.. I heard rumours about the OS 5.0 being available for the 83XXs but I’m trying not to get my hopes up in case it doesn’t happen….

    Devcon isn’t until November. I wouldn’t expect them to release something like this before then.
