OS 5.0 update voor de BlackBerry Storm op komst

Vorig artikel Volgend artikel

Dit weekend heeft RIM bekend gemaakt dat men vanaf maandag nacht (ca. 04u00 Nederlandse tijd) een grote software update, versie, voor de eerste BlackBerry Storm zal gaan uitrollen.

Of dan ook direct de Nederlandse modellen aan de beurt zijn is nog niet bekend. Het zal mij benieuwen of de upgrade naar OS 5.0 de verkoopcijfers van de eerste BlackBerry Storm nog gaat beinvloeden. De opvolger staat immers al klaar. Enfin, voor bezitters van een 'oude' BlackBerry Storm is sw update natuurlijk wel goed nieuws.

Er is al een changelog van de nieuwe firmware beschikbaar. De volledige (Engelse) versie kun je hieronder lezen, maar ik heb enkele opvallende verbeteringen eruit gepikt:
- Snellere werking van de auto-rotatie functie van het display. Dit was inderdaad een van de grootste ergernissen bij het bedienen van de BlackBerry Storm
- Spontaan resetten van het toestel (ook tijdens het beluisteren van voicemails) is opgelost.
- Geheugen lek tijdens file-transfer van grote bestanden opgelost

Symptoms Resolved:

- Significant improvements in rotation detection and screen painting have been introduced in this software.
- Device displayed a white bar at the bottom of the screen after a rotation event.
- When setting a custom SMS tone for a single contact, this tone may playback unexpectedly for SMS' received from other contacts.
- When swiping down the virtual keyboard in an MMS message the send and save draft icons did not appear as expected.
- When viewing an SMS there was no simple way to call the current user. Now the user can select the number from the Callback Number field or from the message body and call that number from the pop up menu.
- The delete prior function has the unwanted side-effect of triggering the compose email screen.
- The user cannot configure their profile settings to increase the number of alerts when being notified of an event such as incoming SMS or email.
- Previous software versions did not allow the user to increase the count of notifications (i.e. Beep 5 times when when I get an email and beep 3 times when I get an sms). In this software, this is now allowed with counts from 1-10.
- When trying to set a home screen background of a certain resolution (more specifically a resolution matching either the width or the height of the native resolution of the LCD) it may have appeared as a black screen.
- When trying to edit/create a folder, the virtual keyboard did not render to allow the user to enter the names of said folders.
- Intermittently, when streaming a video while doing a handover to 2G on a 3G network the video would stop playing.
- If you paused a video recording and then resumed, the icon state may not have reflected the current recording state.
- After recoding a video of a certain size (7M) the saved video may be corrupted and unplayable.
- During manual network selection, the radio buttons associated with the networks did not render as expected.
- When moving out of coverage your device display for no coverage may have been inconsistent.
- During voice calls, your device may have reset on a rare occasion.
- After viewing and accepting the End User Licensing Agreement of the App World application the application doesn't startup (fixes introduced in the latest version of App World).
- On some rare occasions, the device may reset on its own during a voice call or while idle.
- During an MTP side load of 16GB of music, the device would leak memory and stop the transfer at ~75%.
- During device full boot-up, the progress bar skips from 0% complete to ~66% complete instead of showing a gradual progression (Note: from 66% to 100% it does show a gradual progression).
