OS 7.1 update for the Sprint BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 packs mobile hotspot functionality
Almost a couple weeks ago, we got wind that a new OS build for the BlackBerry Torch 9810 was leaked, but most important, it provided users with the useful feature of mobile hotspot functionality. Well, seeing that Sprint’s BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 recently received software updates bringing them to OS version 7.1, they’re blessed the ubiquitous new feature! Needless to say, there are going to be plenty of owners extremely excited to finally see this one being available, since RIM’s devices never offered the feature before.
Naturally, owners began seeing the notification popping up on their devices, but if you’re still twiddling your thumbs away waiting for it to arrive, you can bypass it and simply download the update directly through RIM’s web site via the BlackBerry Desktop software. Now it’ll be interesting to see whether or not other carriers will follow suit and enable their new BlackBerries for mobile hotspot functionality – we'll cross our fingers!.
