It looks like the Sept. 17th date was not legitimate, or at there are further delays... the newest rumored date is Oct. 1. We have another 'reliable' source, again, for this information:

Man, I had a feeling it was nothing more than a tease. Oh well.

By the end of the year, if there is no significant change to the Blackjack, I am thinking about getting a HTC S710 as a birthday present to myself.

WAIT! Did you read the last line?

Maintenance Releases to Windows Mobile 6 for existing devices:



BlackJack - Target TA 10/1

8525 - Target TA 10/26

Treo 750 - Target TA mid-Dec.



New Device Launches



Voice First/Email Triage Segment (Windows Mobile Standard Edition aka Smartphone OS):

Dual Slider - Target TA 9/28 ; Target Availability 10/15



Value Priced Messaging Segment (Windows Mobile Standard Edition aka Smartphone OS):

Low Cost EDGE device - Target TA 10/12 ; Target Availability 11/5 (reminder this device launches as WM5 and will be upgradeable to WM6 at a later date that is TBD)

Motorola Q - Target TA 9/21 ; Target Availability 10/8

BlackJack 2 - Target TA 10/22; Target Availability TBD


Does this mean that there is an actual sequel to the BlackJack? I might actually hang around to see that.

I haven't seen any reliable information on the BJ2, some have speculated that it may have a secondary camera for videoshare and maybe WiFi too. It definitely WILL have WM6 though.

Or it will probably be just another plain Black Jack with the only difference being the WM6. You never know, these american carriers like to cripple phones.

There is so much talk about WM5 vs WM6, well, this might be a stupid question, but how do I check which version of Windows Mobile my Blackjack is currently running?

WM6. Where are we on this for the Blackjacks? Does anyone still care about this? I hope Samsung isn't trying to let people forget about this one!

I see the BlackJack II has Windows Mobile 6. With a new product it may be up to the carrier to support a WM6 upgrade on the original BJ. I hear it maybe June before a BlackJack WM6 is out.

Great... :/ Oh well, I might as well get used to my WM5 then.

Thanks for the update!

I've been running one of the beta versions of WM6 that have been floating around the web. It has some issues but is still a big improvement over WM5. The official release of WM6 for BJ is still "coming soon" as far as I know. In any case, I gave up on the BJ and got the 8525 with WM6 pro.
