BlackBerry OS 6.0: Release Date confirmed for Q3 2010

By Alan Ng - Apr 27, 2010

We have some great news for those of you who are looking forward to the release of BlackBerry OS 6.0, as RIM co-CEO Mike Lazardis has revealed that the next edition of their operating system will be available sometime in Q3 of this year.

As reported from Apple Insider, Lazardis revealed the news during an analyst call yesterday. We have also learned that BlackBerry OS 6.0 will be rolled out to both touchscreen handsets and non-touchscreen handsets.

Furthermore, you’ll be pleased to know that RIM are ‘eventually’ planning to upgrade all handsets to OS 6.0, but there will be a few exceptions as you can imagine. It remains to be seen how long these updates to OS 6.0 will take though.

Does the news about OS 6.0 landing before the end of the year change your mind about what handset to pick up? Let us know your thoughts on this.

    I am even stuck with this for 2 years, plz help Strom 2…. I hope, I get a chance to shift to IPhone!
    and the response from the developers is really pathetic……!

    Same with me. I've since moved on to a Droid X, but I still love my Storm 2 and one of the main reasons I moved on was because if RIM's inability to upgrade one of its top models to the newest and best OS's available to Blackberry. On one hand I can see OS 6 being important to be released on the Torch and waiting to release it to other handsets, but at the same time, if I'm stuck with OS 5 and my hardware is inadequate (judging by RIM's standards) then why stick with something the company deems obsolete anyway? I love my Droid, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't consider going back to a Storm 3 if it has the same specs my Droid currently has. It was and still is a great phone, love the surepress but hate being left out in the cold.
