Will just go right to 7 instead
RIM confirmed on an investors’ call today what we already knew yesterday, which is that there will be no release of version 6.1 of the BlackBerry OS; instead the company has decided instead to call version 6.1 ‘version 7.’
Sources also confirm that during the call it was suggested that new models would be introduced at BlackBerry World next week. While RIM stopped short of saying which models would be released, we believe that our past stories hold true and we will see several new models introduced. The two models that are already drawing a lot of attention are the new Bold and the new Touch, both of which are said to feature stronger processors for much better performance, and of course, the new OS.
