Features to Be Consistent Across BlackBerry 6 Handsets

Research In Motion recently shared some information regarding BlackBerry 6 with Phone Scoop. BlackBerry 6, which will first be available on the 9800 Torch, will also be provided to the 9700 and 9650 Bolds, and the 9100 Pearl. According to RIM, BlackBerry 6 features and applications will be unchanged across touch and non-touch based BB6 devices. The only difference will be how users interact with the operating system. RIM indicated that the optical trackpad on the 9700, 9650, and 9100 will take the place of the 9800's touch screen, and will offer many of the same gestures and controls. Users of the 9700, 9650, and 9100 can expect to use all the features offered by BB6, none are specific to the 9800 Torch. RIM also clarified that the new WebKit- and HTML5-based browser that is part of BlackBerry 6 will not be offered to devices other than those running BB6. Older devices running BlackBerry OS versions 5.x or 4.x will not be able to download, install, or use the new browser software.

You can buy an unlock code online for like 10 bucks. Whole process takes like 15 mins, and is worth it, IMO, to not have to deal with ATT to get it done.

Difficult?

To be eligible to get an unlock code all you need is

1. At least 10 months since the phone's initial release, longer on an AT&T exclusive, which the Torch probably will not be, in the long run

2. 90 Days or more into a contract o...

gee thanks BB

So I guess everyone with older units and not so old, get no benefit at all. Would have been nice to get the web browser at the very least.
