We haven’t written about a BlackBerry OS update in some time and the news seems a little lame considering what is on the horizon (OS 7 and QNX OS). Nonetheless, it’s cool that carriers such as Verizon have started, and will hopefully continue, to provide changelogs along with the OS update. One of the more interesting updates includes support for BlackBerry Balance. This allows you to securely separate your business and personal data, applications and information.
