We’re not too sure how much truth there is behind this one, but we just got a tip from a Verizon ninja who received an email memo regarding a much needed OS update for the BlackBerry Storm 9530. The memo mentions that OS 18.104.22.168 “is here” and that customers would be receiving alerts during the day telling them to upgrade. We haven’t been able to confirm this yet, but this ninja has proven himself to be a reliable source of VZW information in the past. Oddly, we have yet to come across a leaked copy of OS 22.214.171.124 but we are aware that RIM is already working on OS 126.96.36.199 and greater for the 9530. Perhaps this might be one of those rare instances where a carrier beats the leakers to the punch. We shall see.
