You must already be suffocating on the amount of BlackBerry news there is today. BlackBerry Messenger being banned and monitored, the announcement of the BlackBerry Torch, and now, even the older Berries have something to look forward to.
Thats right, BlackBerry 6, the new OS from RIM that comes on the Torch will also be coming to several existing models of RIM devices. In the US, BlackBerry 9650 owners will get the OS update, and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Pearl 3G are also in line to receive BlackBerry 6 in the UK within the “months ahead.”

No actual release date has been set, nor do we know if it will come at a cost. RIM also say that it is dependent on the networks that your BlackBerry is tied to.

So, Bold 9700, Pearl 3G and 9650 owners, will you be upgrading to OS 6?
