    The browser looks slightly different in this build.

    It's been stretched it out so there's no gap at the top. You now don't know which browser you're using, or whether you're on wifi or gprs. Not sure I like it...

    EDIT: Just did the App World cache clear (Alt R S T) and for some reason everything is back to normal with the browser

    All my apps still work fine (WLM, App World, Google Maps, Facebook, BerryWeather & Pocket Express).

    Can't see any other changes... certainly no photobucket link

    Not long now

    I've read that RIM are planning to officially launch 5.0 at the end of the month, to coincide with the new Bold 9700 release, and full Mac compatible DM.

    After carrier testing and approval, it shouldn't be too long before we see 5.0 rolling out for all new models.

    Default DM and Upgrades

    If i use DM every day to sync etc and have internet connection, will any updates for OS and/or any official Blackberry apps automatically prompt me when i open DM?
    Or do i have to download zip files and mess around with ALX files etc?

    Ie - When 5.0 is released and BBM 5 etc, will my DM pick these up and prompt me to install??

    Yes, you will receive notification of firmware updates through DM, but only those for your particular carrier.
    I don't think BBM5 will appear as an update notification though, as this should be part of the new 5.0 firmware.

    Just updated the OS, so far I can tell my phone boot up a little faster, and I was kinda surprised the update process took only 13 minutes. My last upgrade was like 50 minutes on 8320.
