BlackBerry OS 6 Leaked for Curve 3G 9330, Bold 9650

Builds of BlackBerry 6 have been leaked for the Curve 3G 9330 and Bold 9650, bringing with them all the joy accompanied by a WebKit browser, universal search, and user interface improvements. We’ve been expecting some kind of release soon after seeing both running the software, and we still have the 9100 and 9700 upgrades to look forward to. For the full run-down of new features introduced in OS 6, take a looksee at our walkthrough.

RIM has been forthcoming about OS 6 compatibility for the entry-level Curve 3G 9300, 9330, and the Bold 9650. Considering the 9650 is pretty much the CDMA version of the 9700, we can only hope that OS 6 is making just as much progress on the GSM device. Our reviews for the BlackBerry Curve 3G and the Bold 9650 would be a notch better with some of the additions of OS 6, but ultimately folks will find the same core functionality.

Here are the links for those inclined to give OS 6 a shot, just remember that these are by no means official, and if you bork your phone, good luck finding support.

  • Actually RIM had a press release stating that the 9650 would get BB6.. Just saying 🙂

    will either of these work on the tour?

    Seriously, what’s with the unresearched statements lately Simon. RIM has been saying officially since the BlackBerry 6 event that the 9650 WOULD get BlackBerry 6. And Verizon and Sprint have been saying since it launched that the 9650 would get BlackBerry 6.

  • Ack, sorry, my bad guys. The 9650 thing was right there in the link to the 9100. I really gotta give myself more time for these weekend posts…

      no harm no foul Simon.

      Though I WOULD suggest when you change an article like you did here, you SHOULD leave the original text as it was originally posted and line through, and insert the revised text after.
