    Been running it for a few days now. Upgraded from .150.

    .162 seems to be equally good... pretty stable, decent memory management, etc. etc. Can't really say "better" as I honestly don't know, but I'm sure it must be.

    Haven't done any browser speed racing tests yet, but am finding there are still some glitches with the browser. Specifically, if I browse a website, then close to home screen by hitting the end key (don't actually do a full close on the browser) and then do something like check email and reply to emails, I get the hour glass coming up within the email app (device slows up accordingly). I guess the web browser is still running in the background (even though the page I was visiting is fully loaded) and seems to be consuming a lot of memory or something. If I go back and full close the browser, then it speeds up again.

    Going back to New York would be a good test.

    Other than that, so far so good. Will update if I find anything.

    Just finished loading it... so far so good. Enterprise activation happened pretty fast. Work day is starting to pick up so it's time to put it through its paces and see how it goes in the field.

    True..but when I was hourglassing I could literally see the bars dropping. I'm telling ya, something was stuck in the background that was glurbing up power and memory.

    Oh, and this in on the brand new Bold I bought Tuesday morning. Upgraded immediately upon opening the box. So I guess technically been using it for 48 hours.

    There was a previous thread that said Viigo Beta was the culprit of the clock and battery drain... Personally I have Viigo set to not automatically update so I can't verify if this is true or not...

    Still running .147, skeptical of upgrading as I have had no real problems with my current OS.

    It certainly has been a crazy week for releases escaping to the wild.

    I only just got .156 on this morning, I shall have a crack at .162 tomorrow morning.

    .162 user now, and working fine so far. Only had one reboot and that was on 3G so have switched it back to 2G and not a bump so far.

    Memory is now a LOT more than what I had before. Before I was usually fluctuating around 35 - 40mb but now I am up around 52mb
