While BlackBerry has introduced the BlackBerry Classic earlier today, which is a spanking new smartphone that runs on the BlackBerry 10.3.1 operating system, where it will come with a slew of new software features including an improved camera performance alongside BlackBerry Assistant. For those who happen to own a brand new BlackBerry 10 smartphone and do not want to take the step to upgrade, you will be getting BlackBerry 10.3.1 on your existing handset in due time.
According to Ron Louks, who happens to be BlackBerry’s President of Devices and Emerging Solutions, he has confirmed today that BlackBerry intends to complete its 10.3.1 update and start to push it to mobile carriers as well as unlocked phones in February next year. Needless to say, it will have to go through carrier approval first, prior to appearing on other branded BlackBerry models, so those who happen to be using carrier-subsidized BlackBerrys might have to wait a little bit longer.
While BlackBerry 10.3 is on the BlackBerry Classic, Passport and P’9983, that would mean the older models such as the Z10, Q10 and Z30, will eventually be able to enjoy BlackBerry 10.3.1 in February next year – at the very earliest. Do you think that your patience level will be able to hold out until then?
