BlackJack WM6 Possibility
The Samsung BlackJack should be one of the next smartphones to receive an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6, based on an upcoming German firmware update. The i600 Ultra Messaging, as the device is known outside of the US, is set to receive an official Samsung update to the new OS that should give the device the improved browsing and 'push' data of the software. Whether or not the update would WM6 Standard or the more advanced Professional edition was unclear.
A firm date for the German upgrade isn't set but points to a possible upgrade for AT&T users looking to update their Windows Mobile 5 systems once the firmware upgrade is converted to include the US provider's specific interface changes. The American change may occur as early as June and isn't expected to incur a significant price. [via BGR]
