BlackBerry Bold 9930 OS 7.1.0.163 Released!

Hoping this thread will serve as an active source of news regarding the features and performance that come with newest firmware release.

Some initial observations:

--Addition of Wikitude App

--Addition of Hot Spot feature

--Battery life does not seem to be improved nor lessened. It's still relatively poor.

--Web browsing appears slightly better with less glitches (framing/rendering of subject matter seems to be slightly better which means less scrolling to read web pages in standard format). However, it should be noted that the native browser still intermittently crashes/closes.

--Device Self-Analysis/Diagnostic feature

It often appears that use of a high-speed WiFi connection is almost necessary to experience the full potential of this device. Presently, at 3G speeds in well-covered areas, performance can still be slow and unreliable.

Overall, the 9930 is still - in my humble opinion - the best Berry produced to date. It just requires further development and refinement as do many other devices just like it.

Nevertheless, it's still the first BlackBerry that's actually fun to use!

Happy holidays and please feel free to add and/or explain your experiences with this newest firmware release.

Cheers!
