This software update has been tested to optimize device performance, resolve known issues and apply the latest security patches.
The operating system provides multitasking and supports specialized input devices that have been adopted by Black Berry for use in its handhelds, particularly the trackwheel, trackball, and most recently, the trackpad and touchscreen.
The Black Berry platform is perhaps best known for its native support for corporate email, through Java Micro Edition MIDP 1.0 and, more recently, a subset of MIDP 2.0, which allows complete wireless activation and synchronization with Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, or Novell Group Wise email, calendar, tasks, notes, and contacts, when used with Black Berry Enterprise Server. Updates to the operating system may be automatically available from wireless carriers that support the Black Berry over the air software loading (OTASL) service.
If you are having difficulty updating using your computer, or you do not have a computer, please visit your service provider to see if they can help you perform the update.
