All the news buzzing around Research in Motion’s Ontario based headquarters is undoubtedly about the official announcement of the BlackBerry 8700 that hopefully will come later today. The long feature list, however, subtly hints to something that could be big news for other BlackBerry models.
BlackBerry OS 4.1 will be released as well. One of the key features of BlackBerry OS 4.1 is enhanced Bluetooth support for the v2.0 Protocol stack and a serial profile for PC connectivity that would allow for wireless PC Synch. That’s right boys and girls. Synch your BlackBerry to your PC via Bluetooth.
Now, I don’t know if this will be the case for BlackBerry devices other than the 8700. One can only hope. As long as we are hoping, however, lets hope that you can use Bluetooth to connect your BlackBerry as a wireless modem to your laptop as well. I don’t think that I will hold my breath on that one.
