This link (http://www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade/) will give those that own the Blackberry Pearl 8100 Smart PDA the opportunity to upgrade their operating system. I did the update last night and I’ve been happy so far with the process, which went off without a hitch, and the visible adjustments to make the already great BB experience look good, are even better.
This is an upgrade from version 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. Get the numbers from your BB at Menu | Options | About.
A few of the changes, for me at least, that impact me, will be reviewed here.
New Display Layout
I love the new menu layout. It’s great to not have to go down a big long menu to get to the things at the bottom. Now, the menu layout is in a grid format and you can go sideways and up-and-down like the old blackberry. It’s great. If you haven’t done the upgrade yet, do it!
