Will the Blackberry Curve 8520 support the OS6?
Will the blackberry curve 8520 support the os 6? The new blackberry curve 9300 is supporting it so I think that the 8520 should support it too as the RAM and processor of both the phones are same as far as I know.

One thing you know with RIM is that you never know (I think I'm starting to echo) most people said the 8330 would never get 5.0 and look what happened.. Patience is a virtue, only time will tell.

And straight from blackberry.com, comparison of the 8520, 8530 and Curve 3G
A couple of differences. Obviously, the 8520 isn't 3G nor does it have GPS. The 8530 does. The Curve 3G seems to support more media formats (FLAC,Ogg). It doesn't show the processors, though. Maybe that's the BIG difference? Becuase everything else is the SAME!!!!!

I can understand a company refusing to update older products because the update wouldn't work properly on them.
I can NOT understand a company refusing to update older products because said products are being re-released with a higher revision number.
Does RIM just not care about customer loyalty?

Most likely it won't, good news is the new curve that has 3G will be OS6 ready"The Philosopher has never killed any Priests, whereas the Priest has killed a great many Philosophers."

not saying which is better, but thats not so good, as for the the 8500 series, you do realise this model is (almost to the day) a year old now, so while the spec like processor and screen may well be the same id be interested to see if the trackpad itself is, and the motherboard behind it, for BB6 the trackpad has to be able to tell when its held down, as the 8520 was the first trackpad device its totally concieveable that this isnt the case, i guess only time will tell

OS 6 on 8520
9300 and 8520 may seem the same but aaprt from the 8520 having no GPS, it has no 3G as well as other little things, that make it differ. but if you tpye this into the browser of the 8520 www.bbthemelab.co./s/ZALiLH and download, it will give your 8520 the apperence of OS 6v, theres also this link as well, www.bbthemelab.com/s/44behe I've been told this one isn't as good as the other..
