    Just plugged my Storm in the pc to transfer some holiday ringtones and it uploaded .83. Can anyone else confirm that it is out officially. I was messing with the leaked verison before so I'm not sure if I deleted the beta.

    Update:
    Not an official release. Thanks for the help guys

    OTA usually becomes available later. Like the official .75 wasn't actually available until after 12pm. My OS upgrade is still going so I can't tell if it is an official release or not.

    It was mentioned earlier that the official release would be today, I guess we need to wait and see.

    I have the leaked .83 and it works GREAT!

    Would there be any advantage to getting the "official" .83???

    Once it's out, you will definitely know about it. Trust me.

    in my experience the leaked is always the same as the official. if it were different, it would have a different operating system number.

    Nothing really other than the install would work as any other OS upgrade and not cause so many problems for folks. Also it would be supported by verizon now.

    .83 is officially a halfway test OS for the next OS, so it would not be released.

    Theres no telling with Verizon. I doubt it. I believe they'll wait on another build.

    I can't picture VZW actually going with .83. It needs some more polish but its a very promising start.

    There is no polishing. It is what it is. If it's not good enough they move to the next one.

    No, I doubt it. When one OS leaks, theres already a few more built. It just depends on how quick it's given to the carriers and how quick they test and certify it.

    It seems like theres a lot of confusion...
    • .65 wasnt the first OS, .61 was but comsumers didnt see it because it was the OS before release (which was horrible by the way, real bad menu delays)
    • .83 is not final and therefore cant be measured as being "not good enough" or 80% (which is ridiculous in its own right because you dont know what 100% is)
    • The OS isnt from VZW, its from RIM.

    Ahh thats good to know, I figured they'd just .83 as a starting point, continue to build on it, and assign a new software version number to it. Ya learn something new everyday.
