We all know that the Blackberry Torch (aka Bold 9800) has just been released on an official capacity, whereby it will run on the BlackBerry 6 OS in order to separate itself from the rest of the pack. Unfortunately for the older BlackBerry touchscreen devices, it doesn’t sound too positive from the press release concerning the BlackBerry OS 6 that it will play nice with the previous generation of smartphones. Depending on carrier certifications in the coming months, one can expect the new OS to hit the BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Bold 9650 and BlackBerry Pearl 3G, not to mention any new BlackBerry smartphones. As for current touchscreen BlackBerry owners, tough luck as it seems as though you will be stuck with BlackBerry OS 5.
