My Pearl 8130 meets OS 4.5 (pictures and features)

May 29, 2008 | By | 9 Comments

I've been testing a beta version of RIM's upcoming OS 4.5 for my BlackBerry Pearl 8130. While no exact time frame is known for this new OS upgrade it is expected to come VERY soon. First off you won't notice any crazy new additions to the UI or anything. Continue reading to see the changes and pictures…


Depending on how much you use your BlackBerry you will notice a few small changes. I've snapped some screen shots and listed the changes I noticed below:

  • FIRST OFF! Volume up and down now control the music (skip or back)
  • Camera and video camera interface has changed a little
  • Geotagging (puts GPS location on photo) is coming in the new OS
  • Documents to Go only comes with Word and Powerpoint so far. You can't make new sheets only edit existing ones.

Stuff that currently isn't working (but should be fixed for the full release):

  • I couldn't get the geotagging feature to pickup my GPS yet…
  • You can select words via the ALT key at the moment
  • Voicenotes can't be played
  • The camera is slow at saving pictures

I went to the blackberry site which directed me to Verizon, which only showed a The only site that I saw that had 4.5 was Vodaphone and although they said it would work with any phone, it was in German! HELP!! I’m dying to get the HTML mail. Thanks.
