Samsung offers up Win Mobile 6 for original BlackJack

Samsung BlackJack WM6

Samsung today gave owners of the original AT&T-branded BlackJack smartphone a Windows Mobile 6 upgrade. The patch brings the phone up to the same Windows Mobile 6 Standard base OS as the more recent BlackJack II, supplying it with an improved web browser, "push" Exchange e-mail with HTML support, and Office Mobile for basic editing on the road. The update also provides AT&T-specific features previously locked out of the device; one-way Video Share calls on the carrier's 3G cell network are now possible.

The update is free for any owners of the initial BlackJack on AT&T's network and should go live as of 5PM today from Samsung's website. Applying the upgrade currently demands a Windows 2000 or XP system with the latest version of ActiveSync and is said to wipe the phone's data clean before its changes take effect.
