    I think I am with you on this one. If the new slider has 6.0 on it it should work on the S2 and I thought I read somewhere that the slider will be out withing a couple of months? If that is the case the 6.0 will leak then or soon.

    I for one must be in the minority because I truly believe we may have seen the end of leaks for awhile.It makes no sense for VZW to test anything knowing that 6.0 will be given to them for testing in a couple of months. There is not a chance in helll of VZW passing another 5.0 build.

    That being said there are still Bell, Telus, and Saktel who might just be testing a higher 6xx build. I think it was Bell that released .517 with the 9550. They might just push something before 6.0 comes out.

    Leaks might slow for the 9700, 9630, and 85xx Curves because most if not all of them should get 6.

    The 9550 has been an continues to be the red headed stepdevice of the Blackberry community. So unless the northern carriers find it in their hearts to release something higher than .607 we are pretty well screwed.

    hey no problem. I know what you mean and I have been known to have a few stupid threads myself. It really does not matter to me what everybody uses as long as it works for them. For me the S2 has been fairly good. Better than the S1 even though the .419 fixed a lot of the issues for me. I am not sure what 6.0 will bring. Probably not anything that I will really get excited about other then possibly a better browser or radio. I guess we will have to see.

    Sorry...probably a bit too cranky today. I'm just tired of seeing all these stupid threads (and this isn't one of them...hence my apology) where everybody is threatening to leave bb if 6.0 doesn't fix...blah, blah, blah. Like anybody here really cares whether or not someone gets a different phone.

    As to your original post, I think we'll see more leaks. We're just experiencing a temporary dry spell.

    The slider OS will not load on an S2. The S3 OS will not load on an S2. And you can not Hybrid a 5.0 radio with 6.0 Java any more than you could hybrid a 5.0 Java with a 4.6 OS.

    The slider will likely be the first anyone gets to see OS6 in person or a real video of it running (not animation). If you want to see OS6 on a Storm I expect you are waiting till November to get an S3.

    I just can't see a leak if OS6 is in the near future.
