A Chinese web site has posted a leaked build, OS 5.0.0.140, for the Storm 9530. I wouldn't trust any software coming from a Chinese website, especially something that controls my phone. Who knows what kind of malware could be in this update. I'll wait for Big Red, as slow as they are.

Tried it for a day. Battery life awful, got locked into an app error 200, causing a need for a safe boot mode, where I deleted BBM5 for OS5. If I had a test bed to use, I'd stick with it. Looks promsing for an alpha version, this doesn't cut it as a beta.
