    Great news!
    I’m just hoping they roll out the OS Update to other countries (other than the usual immediate recipients, US and Canada) real soon.
    From experience, OS updates take forever to get to other countries. Sure, carriers are also equally responsible, but BlackBerry should do something about it. At the end of the day, BlackBerry smartphone owners will hold BlackBerry liable/responsible, and not their respective carriers.
    I know there are several underlying issues here, mostly having to do with restrictions carriers have for their subscribers because of the design of their subscription plans. However, I’m sure there’s a better way of working everything out.
