I think this might be posted somewhere else on the board. But V09 is now available. The only difference I can notice is the web browser is completely different, but what a difference! The new browser makes surfing the web on the phone a MUCH better experience. It also seems a bit faster to me. It is worth your time to get the update if you use the internet at all on the phone.
when you go to fill in information such as username/passwords, leaving comments on facebook, etc., a little qwerty keyboard will popup on the screen in portrait or landscape mode depending on the orientation of the screen at that moment. the touch is surprisingly very accurate. also, the browser will automatically zoom in when you click on a blank field that needs to be filled in.
it's just an overall better mobile web experience. makes the mandatory data package a little more worth it...which is what i've always said, if they're gonna make us buy a data package on feature phones, they should at least give us a browser worth our money.
