I have owned my Blackberry for about a year now. I just realized that I could upgrade the software on the phone! Well, I guess I knew it was possible but never really tried before. I run a Mac for my primary machine, so I don't have the Desktop Manager software installed (Windows only). I do have an old laptop lying around that runs Windows XP, so I decided to give the upgrade a try. For all you Mac users out there that have not upgraded your Blackberry, you're missing out on some pretty cool features. My original Blackberry OS was version 4.2. I have just upgraded to version 4.5. The new version has quite a few features that I have enjoyed in just the first day since upgrading.
- HTML Email capability. No more raw HTML in my inbox.
- Updated graphics in the Calendar
- Better battery life? Maybe it's just my imagination, but it seems better
Check out the full list of new features on the Blackberry site.
