According to The Boy Genius, RIM will issue a BlackBerry Storm firmware update in the first week of December. The bugs it fixes are listed below, leaked from an internal document, complete with “interim recovery instructions,” or in other words: a quick and dirty fix.
They range from the hilarious (the first one is a corker), to the ridiculous (the last one, in particular).
What’s more, a subsequent update will fix even more issues, including a loss of e-mail connectivity, the phone failing to fire up its mobile receiver at all, and a couple of issues with the keyboard not responding and the phone’s screen orientation.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: We actually like the Storm. A lot. It’s just a shame the software’s so buggy. Hopefully RIM’s update will fix that.
