Research in Motion (RIM) could be set to release the latest version of its BlackBerry operating system (OS), in tandem with the new Bold 9800 smartphone, in a matter of days.
The mobile maker has announced a joint event with US network provider AT&T on the 3rd of August, prompting a rash of speculation that it will mark the arrival of the new OS iteration as well as the latest addition to the best-selling Bold range.
The Bold 9800 is reputed to be the first RIM smartphone to run BlackBerry OS 6.0 and will also sport a touchscreen display, five megapixel camera and 4GB of onboard memory, according to recent reports.
RIM has already given away certain details about OS 6.0 via a series of online videos. These revealed that it will feature support for touchscreen interactions integrated into the platform, along with onscreen widgets, an updated media player, new web browser and convergent social networking features.
A new flip phone from the business phone specialists is also being widely tipped to make its first appearance next week.
