    I've seen the new OS 6 software for a newer Blackberry Curve 3G .. I was just wondering if anyone knows if the Blackberry 8520 will get this update as well?
    I've heard that it won't. So I was just curious! Because that is lame!

    Nope. Not that one either. Not enough memory.

    Why would the 8530 get it when the 8520 didn't?

    That poster shows that they have/had the 8330.

    When the 5.0 device OS came out, it was available for the 8330 but not for any of the other 83xx series. My guess is that they are thinking it might be the same thing.

    But the 8330 has more memory than the other 83xx series models. The 8520 and 8530 obviously have the same amount of memory.

    My point exactly, since the only thing setting the two devices apart are GPS and 3G, there is no reason whatsoever to believe one would while the other isn't.

    Neither the 8520 or the 8530 will get BB6. That's it.

    It is not a memory issue. It is a processor issue. The 85xx series lacks a fast enough processor to run OS 6.

    He just asked a eustion! Stop being a **** and posting your useless comments all over the forums!
    LOL and you dont?

    @op - it's well stated that you won't be able to get it.

    @Laura - is that really? I thought it would be more of a memory problem than processor?

    I leave the forums for three months, and come back to find that the same question is getting asked. Search is your friend before you post.

    Although I think the 8520 will be getting OS 6.1!!!!!!!!

    Not everybody has spare money to swap devices every 9 months. I know how much and how long I had to save for the 9780... And for the 8520 for that matter...

    The 85xx has the same amount of memory as the 9700. The difference is the processor.

    Yep. I would have probably waited if the news of the Bold Touch were out back when I got the 9780 hehe.
