BlackBerry 6: Bold 9700 and Pearl 3G Update in weeks

Back in August Jamie Pert reported that BlackBerry OS 6 was coming to the Bold 9700 and the Pearl 3G. We can now tell you that the new mobile operating system update will be within weeks, and we have two videos for you below to see them in action.

The only RIM handset to be running on BlackBerry OS 6.0 is the Torch, so will be a welcome upgrade for Bold 9700 and pearl 3G users. There are a number of good features with the new mobile OS, but there are still a few things that could have been worked on a little more.

It was no secret that the browser on BlackBerry OS 5.0 needed an improvement, and the new WebKit browser is certainly that. However, Chris Ziegler from Engadget noticed that it is not without its issues.

With this news and the unveiling of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet device, Research In Motion is certainly in good shape and is prepared for a fight when it comes to keeping its smartphone market share.
