blackberry OS

Kevin from CB has posted a new OS leak for the Curve 8900. As usual, this is a leak and not an official OS. Don’t download this if you are not a pro user who understands OS upgrades and downgrades. I haven’t installed this personally and I really can’t guarantee that it won’t blow up your BlackBerry.

Download OS 4.6.1.199 for the BlackBerry Curve 8900, here.

Telefònica distributes Palm and not BlackBerry

How do carrier relations work? Why does Telefònica from Spain decide to be the exclusive distributor of the Palm Pre in Spain, the UK and Latin America? They should be the exclusive dealers of RIM Bolds or 8900s. They would be much better devices to support. In any case, Telefònica will be distributing the Palm Pre when it should be giving out a Bold or an 8900.

Agreed?
