Verizon's BlackBerry Storm 9530 matches Vodafone's 9500 with unofficial OS .109
Admit it, owners of Verizon's BlackBerry Storm 9530, you were jealous after reading about the leaked OS upgrade for the Vodafone version of the first touchscreen BlackBerry. But you don't have to be green any longer as a leak of the same OS version was discovered for the 9530. And again, as we always tell you, there is risk involved when you download software on your phone that does not have the stamp of approval from your carrier. The new OS is version while the last official Verizon upgrade was version Early reports indicate that the phone is running faster with the new OS, but the camera remains sluggish. The QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode remains. When will the next official firmware upgrade appear? Recently we reported sources saying that a Verizon approved upgrade could occur at the end of March. With so much time between now and then, we could see many more leaked releases before an official upgrade hits the Storm.
