blackberry 6BlackBerry 6 debuts in just under a week on the new BlackBerry Torch 9800, but RIM’s got some great news for existing customers. The new OS will land on several existing Berries, and we’ve got the lowdown on them right here.


BlackBerry 6 brings several new features to RIM’s handsets that should please smartphone obsessives. Alongside a new browser, with support for multiple tabs, there’s new media features including a podcast app, and even Wi-Fi media syncing (Something the iPhone doesn’t have). It’s launching on the touchscreen BlackBerry Torch 9800, but RIM has now confirmed, as it previously hinted, that BlackBerry 6 will be hitting a few existing, QWERTY BlackBerrys too.

In the US, the BlackBerry 9650 will get BlackBerry 6, but the big news for UK owners is that both the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Pearl 3G will be receiving BlackBerry 6 updates in the “months ahead”.

There’s no word of an exact release, date, whether it will be free, and RIM says it’s dependent on networks playing ball, but that’s still great news for current BlackBerry users lumbered with RIM’s awful, awful web browser.

We’ll be going hands on with BlackBerry 6 shortly, at least on the BlackBerry Torch 9800, so stay tuned.
