OS 6.1.... Anyone Frustrated?
Okay, this phone is less than a year old now. It feels like RIM never planned on putting much focus on this phone and that ticks me off. Are we going to get 6.1 some day? I am doubtful. My guess is that they will release the touchscreen bold with 6.1 and never give it to us.

6.0 hasn't been out very long. What makes you think they are going to just from the original 6.0 that we developed right to 6.1? There is not a BlackBerry on the market that has 6.1 yet. Have patience, i would rather they sit on it for a while and work out the bugs instead of releasing it early.

The bold was released with os5 and a promise to give us os6. Nothing was ever said about os6.1 I'd much prefer it on a better device when it does come out anyway. The bold touch looks to be that device imo. The specs are better and faster cpu as well. I know a lot of folks don't care for os6. I happen to like it, but I do think the bold could have handled it better. The bold touch will have the proper amount of power to handle 6.1

When you buy a 2010 Ford Focus do you expect to get a 2011 updated engine when it comes out? Manufacture and retail is a constantly moving target. You buy what you need when you need it. It's nice when I am able to load a new OS on my phone, but I don't demand or expect it. I bought it for what it was when I bought it.Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

Personally, I don't think the 6 interface was really designed for trackpad-only devices, but rather for sliding things around by touch. Sure, it works with the trackpad, but it feels like a "backwards compatible" feature, and not what it was intended for.

Seems to me OS5 was designed to run well on the Bold 9650. I am running 6.0 and do not mind it, but I do not expect it to act any better than 5.0. When my contract is up this summer I will check out the other BB options and choose one that functions well, does what I want it to, holds a call and keeps a good charge. If those things work, I do not care what OS is on it.The Grass Looks Greener Because Its Painted

And no, I would not be disappointed if 6.1 wasn't designed for the 9650 or any of the other older devices....I'm happy to even have os6 at all on it, in my opinion rim did us a favor making it for our phones, and allowing us to upgrade for free! Its not something they had to do....

What the heck is the difference if it is OS 6.0, 6.1, 17.23456, or what ever, does your phone work. End of story, when and if they upgrade you will get it and it will do whatever the upgrade decides it will do then.
I swear sometimes i\I think some people o this forum do need a life.
I hate to see how you feel about real issue, like world humger or world peace, do those frustrate you as well?
