Verizon to send OTA firmware upgrade for the BlackBerry Storm?
We recently reported on an officially released firmware upgrade for the BlackBerry Storm 9500. If InformationWeek's report is correct, owners of the 9530 version of the first touchscreen BlackBerry will have no reason to feel green with envy anymore. The report has it that within a few weeks, Big Red is expected to send an OTA firmware upgrade to the Storm users on their network. The OS version, 4.7.0.113, is the same one that owners of the 9500 receiveded through official channels and is a build that has leaked to 9530 users several weeks ago and received high praise from those who downloaded it. Talks that Verizon considers this version good enough to make an official release seem to be accurate and many users of the device are eagerly anticipating QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode and a new easier-to-use copy and paste functions that are included in .113. It has been a while since Verizon placed its seal of approval on the "OS for the 9530" file. The last official release was version 4.7.0.75. Letting customers get the upgrade OTA makes it much easier for users who donĀ“t feel at home with RIM's Desktop Manager software pack.
