    Will OS 4.7.1 or 5.0 ever come to the Curve 8330? I like the way it looks and it seems very fast.

    Its unlikely it will make it to ANY 8xxx devices that are older than the flip

    Frankly, as a Curve 8330 owner, I hope that we don't have to progress thru versions 4.6/4.7 on our way to 5.0 (whenever 5.0 does eventually get released). Having said that, I am having a strong suspicion that BlackBerry will probably hold off on releasing 5.0 to 8xxx series devices for quite some time. There are a LOT of new models planned to be released soon - a justifiable selling point will probably be the 5.0 firmware. Its marketing 101.

    I would say with the lack of beta os's out there, it doesn't seem RIM is too anxious to go much farther with the 8330 os beyond .160. Isn't it funny that the 8330 has been out just over a year and many consider it to be old technology?

    It has to do with internal memory + processor. OS 5.0 is much harder on the system than previous versions.

    Well.. I did find a OS 5.0 leak but, it is not verified, but one guy commented on trying it, and said it was decent. But I'm not risking it.

    What kind of install can I do to get the (left to right) scrolling picture gallery like the 4.7 has? I really like that option and am looking all over....
