BlackBerry OS 7 For New Devices Only

BlackBerry World 2011 is introducing some pretty exciting stuff for the BlackBerry community, but those who had their hearts set on BlackBerry 7 OS are out of luck if they are not buying a new handset. OS 7 will launch on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930

RIM won’t be releasing updates to current devices because the OS needs better hardware and processor speed to operate. The new Bold devices are running a 1.2 GHz processor with a boosted GPU, unlike the current devices.

This seems really unfortunate for current BlackBerry lovers who were ready for an operating system update, but then again this is just another outdated OS from RIM. Hopefully the BlackBerry line of smartphones will get QNX in the not to distant future.
