If you’re not getting enough BlackBerry news this week and want just a bit more, then here you go. A few days ago an internal Bell document we posted pointed towards a future software update that will give all three new BlackBerry devices (9900, 9860 and 9810) the WiFi Hotspot feature. This certainly made the new BB7 devices more attractive.
Now a new doc that we’ve obtained shows a future software upgrade for Rogers that will bring Wi-Fi calling (UMA) to their BlackBerry OS 7 devices. The fine print states that it’s “not available at launch – enabled via software update at future timeframe”. In addition, if I’m reading this small print and these asterisk correctly it also shows that the Curve 9300, Torch 9800 and the Bold 9780 are “Not Upgradeable to BlackBerry® OS”.
We’ll have more info soon!
