BlackBerry Tour MR1 OS to be 4.7.1.53?

blackberrytourreview13

We’ve been hearing rumors of a September MR for the BlackBerry Tour for a while now. Even though OS 4.7.1.42 didn’t turn out to be the first official new software release, we believe we now have a winner. We’ve just got word that the official maintenance release for the BlackBerry Tour due out around October 1st will be OS 4.7.1.53. I’ve been running this on my Tour for a pretty long time and even though it does manage to speed up the phone a bit, it’s really not the answer I think many Tour owners are looking for. Better than nothing, though! At least until 5.0 gets here…

Thanks, Rob!

File this one under the rumor category for now (oh check that, we did), but we’ve been told that the next OS release for Verizon’s BlackBerry Tour (and consequently Sprint’s as well, we assume) will be OS 4.7.1.42. No major changes but hopefully this fixes those random slowdown and lag problems a few people seem to be having. Again, not confirmed, but worth reporting we feel.

Thanks, Dev!
