    Big announcement by RIM yesterday. The latest OS looks like it’d be faster than version 6 (thank God). Good thing they revamped the Facebook app too. And free Premium version of Documents To Go bundled!

    Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced plans to launch 5 new BlackBerry® smartphones based on the BlackBerry® 7 Operating System (OS).  RIM, inconjunction with carriers and distribution partners around the world, is rolling out two new BlackBerry® Bold™ models and three new BlackBerry® Torch™ models, all running the powerful new BlackBerry® 7 OS.

    The launch of this family of handsets will be RIM’s largest global launch ever and more than 225 carriers and distribution partners have already commenced or completed over 500 certification programmes for these 5 new handsets.
