New OS offers version offers option
BlackBerry Storm owners are in for a big treat with the upcoming release of the 126.96.36.199 version of the BlackBerry OS. This latest version of the OS will allow Storm users the option of enabling the full on-screen keyboard in the portrait mode.
The ability to enable the full QWERTY keyboard on the screen rather than using the included SureType support has been one of the most requested features for the Storm. It would seem that RIM has been listening to its customers and is working hard to get this version of the OS ready for release.
While some leaked unofficial versions of the 188.8.131.52 OS software are floating around on a variety of sources on the Internet, we think the release might be closer than you think, according to our sources. You just might be better off waiting for the upcoming official release version of the OS for the Storm.
