The Boy Genius came through big yesterday with two pieces of T-Mobile BlackBerry News. The most exciting factoid? One of BG's informants has provided the upcoming launch date of the new BlackBerry Curve 8320, which is set for September 24, 2007. The 8320 adds Wi-Fi functionality to all of goodness found in the standard 8300 Curve form factor - sweet!
Equally exciting news if you are a T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700g/8705g user - T-Mobile added a free update to OS 220.127.116.11 at t-mobile.com. This OS update version is actually newer than the 18.104.22.168 version currently available on T-Mobile's BlackBerry 8800. The launch occurred without any hype (not wanting to cannabilize device sales?), but sales reps are apparently educating customers about the benefits of the new OS update, going so far as to say it will make their 8700 "just like the Pearl!" The update can be found at t-mobile.com.
See the 8700g/8705g OS Upgrade Fact Sheet after the jump.
