I’m sure some of you have already heard plenty of rumors that a new BlackBerry OS will be released for the AT&T Bold 9000 and the Tour 9630. My buddy Al Sacco is reporting that this is indeed the case, along with BGR also mentioning the new Tour 9630 OS.
The new AT&T Bold 9000 OS is supposed to be version 18.104.22.1688, probably the package version and not the application version, which is supposed to be made available at the AT&T BlackBerry downloads site August 25th. Here is what this release will include:
- AT&T Visual Voicemail (optional feature)
- General handset software optimization and improvements
- Capability to set the device to “2G only” for better battery life and coverage in some international roaming situations
- Additional VPLs including My-Cast Weather, Wiki Mobile, Mobile Banking, a few games and more.
The latest available OS for the Bold 9000 is v22.214.171.1241 (package version 126.96.36.1999) from T-Mobile UK, so the new AT&T OS might be a slightly higher application version.
As for the new Tour OS, BGR is claiming that v188.8.131.52 will be getting released by Verizon, followed by a possible release from Sprint. Right now the Tour OS release is just a rumor.
