    Battery life is slightly better- nothing majorly different than 7.0. Used to get a day on that- getting a day on it know as well- except Bluetooth is now always on.

    Thanks Abbas! Kind of disappointing to hear that it does not make a major difference to battery life in spite of the additional built-in battery management functionality.

    I too have been looking at the official Blackberry Software download site BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites but couldn't find the OS7.1 for P'9981.

    Plugged my P'9981 into the Desktop Manager and still see no prompt to update in spite of pressing the "update device" button.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    It's already Friday !!! Still no OS7.1 in sight...........I really wonder what is RIMs Business Strategy.

    Probably an unorthodox one that includes; 1) not responding to customer's email 2) Making customer wait for an OS update which by the time it is released, the equipment will be outdated 3) Releasing a product and not providing service and support thereafter.

    Very innovative I should say but not sure about their long term survivability.
