Blackberry OS 6.0 Pinned For Summer Release, Upgrades Possible

Straight from the horses mouth, comes the news that the latest incarnation of every suit-totin’, email-checkin’, business-type’s favourite phone OS (that is, BlackBerry OS 6.0) will be released this Summer.

During an analyst talk today, RIM co-chief Mike Lazaridis showed off the first official teasers of the new OS.

New features will include the previously mentioned WebKit browser — which will now play a central role in the OS, and the OS will support both trackpad and touchscreen devices, but the juiciest bombshell was the news that older BlackBerries will be able to upgrade, though it wasn’t stated how many models will be given the option.

That’s nice of RIM, isn’t it?
