It seems that Verizon Wireless’ BlackBerry Bold 9650 will be able to run OS 6 without missing a beat, despite initial speculation that OS 6 requires at least 512MB of memory. Technically, the Bold 9650 was the first BlackBerry smartphone to offer 512MB memory, hence sparking off such a “theory”. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with what OS 6 will deliver, it will include a new universal search, categorized icons as well as quick access areas for wireless connections and notifications. It remains to be seen whether relatively newer devices such as the 9700 Bold or 9100 Pearl will be left behind since they have just half the amount of memory, so stay tuned as more develops.
