    Details

    This article profiles the main changes to BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.

    SureType® Enhancements

    Word Completion

    As BlackBerry smartphone users type, a list of word options is displayed when the BlackBerry smartphone user pauses. The vertical list consists of word selections that are the closest match to the word the BlackBerry smartphone user is trying to type. The BlackBerry smartphone user may then select the word.

    Advanced Editing

    BlackBerry smartphone users may now scroll to a word they want to correct and move between specific letters by rolling the trackball up or down to flip between letters.

    Improved Frequency Learning

    Commonly used words are recognized with greater consistency.

    Wireless BlackBerry Device Software Upgrades

    BlackBerry smartphone users can wirelessly upgrade their BlackBerry smartphone.

    Voice Notes

    BlackBerry smartphone users can record voice notes using the Voice Notes feature. Voice notes can be sent using the following:

    * Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages
    * email messages
    * personal identification number (PIN)
    * instant messaging

    The BlackBerry smartphone user may also store the recorded voice note locally for playback at a later time. For more information on Voice Notes, see KB05452.

    Note: BlackBerry Messenger supports this feature with BlackBerry Device software 4.2.1.

    Selectable Phone Equalizer

    Adjust the audio to best suit the BlackBerry smartphone user listening preference. Listening preferences include:

    * Normal
    * Boost Bass
    * Boost Treble

    For instructions on improving phone call quality, see KB14258.

    Enhanced Voice IT Policy Controls

    IT Policies may be used to manage voice usage. A whitelist (always allow) and blacklist (never allow) of phone numbers can be created.

    * Ability to Allow Ability to Control International Calls - allow or deny international calls received to the BlackBerry smartphone.
    * Ability to Allow or Deny by Area Code and Single Numbers - create Allow or Deny calling lists by area code and single numbers.

    BlackBerry® Maps Enhancements

    Points of Interest

    Using the Local Search menu option, search for local businesses and landmarks within a 30 kilometer radius of the current location. For instructions, see KB14271.

    Route Saving

    Routes from one location to another may be saved for later viewing. For instructions, see KB05451.

    Multimedia Enhancements

    Send and receive video files using MMS

    Attach video files to MMS messages, and play video files received using MMS. For more information, see KB14268.

    3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) Progressive download

    Allows streaming and playback of media from web sites on the BlackBerry smartphone using the browser.
    3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) Progressive download

    Allows streaming and playback of media from web sites on Wi-Fi® enabled BlackBerry smartphones.

    Music playlist support in the Media application

    Create and edit playlists (in .m3u format) directly in the Media application on the BlackBerry smartphone.

    Video recording

    BlackBerry smartphone users can record video using the Camera by selecting the Video Camera icon. The following options may be selected to control settings:

    * Video light - brightens dark environments to improve video recording
    * White balance - control white balance of the camera; options include Automatic, Indoor, and Sunny
    * Video format - use normal mode (240X180) or lower quality MMS mode (176X144)
    * Store videos - decide where to save video files

    Browser Enhancements

    The start page accommodates easier navigation and displays the five most recently visited bookmarks. If the BlackBerry smartphone user clicks Bookmarks or History, they are redirected to a dedicated screen, respectively.

    BlackBerry Internet Service

    Synchronize the address book and calendar features of integrated email accounts (for example, Yahoo!® Mail address book and calendar) with the Address Book and Calendar on the BlackBerry smartphone.

    This feature requires BlackBerry® Internet Service 2.4.

    The neccessity to run the foreseen new handheld OS 4.3.1 is said to be neccessary to bring this whole series of eye-popping improvements on the Blackberry handheld when this major BES update is available. No idea for BIS users.

    When you say all 8000 series that means the 8800 and the 8830. If it is I am going to flip out. 20 bucks though Verizon doesn't offer it to Q4 of 2008.

    SYNCING WITH GOOGLE CALENDAR?

    Now that would be a very cool feature! I've been looking for a OTA syncing solution for my Berry for some time now. I know there will be sync support for Yahoo, but what about Google? Any thoughts?

    RIM should have put the video camera on the curve in the beginning

    This is a minor thing but wouldn’t it be nice to have all your text msgs grouped together like an IM instead of multiple entrees for each user & see smiley’s as smiley’s instead of text. That’s 2 things Palm has on everyone with their "outdated" OS RIM if you hear me it’s the little fun extras.

    P.S. I love my Crackberry

    Whenever the new OS does finally come out where are you suppose to go to get it. The blackberry website doesn't even act like they have a clue. I noticed the earliest post about this subject were in early Nov. Is it already out and i don't know about it. Someone please enlighten me.
