It looks like Verizon will be bringing Curve 8530 users a special treat coming soon. We got our hands on a PDF that shows an update to OS 126.96.36.1998 is on the way. No exact date is mentioned for the release, but it should be within the next week or two. Highlights of the update include:
- Simplified lock-key function
- Overall improvements to battery life
- Improved video streaming
- Improved Voice Activated Dialing function
- Message enhancements
- Bluetooth improvements
This will be an official Verizon release for 8530 users. The document lists the download site as verizonwireless.com/curve8530support for the upgrade, but the page isn't live just yet. Stay tuned for more details on this one.
