When it rains, it pours. Just to get your week off to a fun start and as a little thank you for voting for the Bold 9700 today in the Smartphone March Madness battles (if you haven't voted for the Bold 9700 to beat the Pre yet, VOTE HERE), Bold 9700 owners can grab OS 188.8.131.526. I haven't had a chance to install it yet, so not sure what's improved... if you give it a go be sure to report back in the comments.
*OS Disclaimer - Please Read: Keep in mind this is NOT an official release and as such is not supported by RIM or your Carrier. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base - do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS). Follow the links below for more information and instructions. *
