    We have known RIM is working on a quick follow up to OS 7.0 for a bit now but it has been quite shy. We first saw it back in August in the LogicMail logs showing a very early model Torch 9810 with OS 7.1.0.4. Now we have another tipster who contacted us with their logs showing BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 devices with OS 7.1.0.43 and other variants.

    I have heard quite a few rumblings about this new OS 7.1 which is supposed to be more responsive and fix bugs all around but we usually donít see a public release until the builds start passing the X.X.X.100 stage so we have a bit to go.
    Edit: I edited the title.

    With the rapid development of OS 7 it doesn't surprise me that they're working on a 7.1 branch at the moment. This is a refreshing change to the usually glacial release schedules of previous OSes.

    Now if we only knew what was so major as to give it a .1 release...

    #excitement when I go with wind by the end of my term, I'll either get the rest of the stock of 9780 or a 9300 (can't beat free), 9360 (likely still free), or 9900 at $120 with the supertab. But when I do.. I HOPE the aftermarketers have the fat extended Li-Ion/LiPo 2000-3000 mAh batteries ready by that time. If you know what I mean, I'm used to swapping batteries, I don't even use my USB charger anymore.

    This just might explain why there have been no 7.0 leaks for over six weeks now.

    I'm not quite sure what any of all of that has to do with OS 7.1. You might want to cut down on the caffeine.

    I think 7.1 will launch Blackberry Tag with it as well.

    The various leaks and rumours point to mobile hotspot and uma for the carriers that support that, beyond that you would also expect to see general improvements in stability, battery life and call performance since those tend to be areas that improve over time with new releases.
