BlackBerry 6, RIM’s latest smartphone operating system, was first announced back in April of this year at WES (BlackBerry’s annual conference). This week, we finally got to see BB 6 running on real live hardware with the announcement of the BlackBerry Torch 9800. And now, we have images of the new OS running on some already released hardware, the BlackBerry Bold 9650. BBLeaks has received images BlackBerry running on the Verizon variant of the Bold 9650. RIM announced that it would make BlackBerry 6 available carriers who sold the Bold 9700, Bold 9650, and Pearl 3G handsets. BBLeaks reports that this preliminary build is a bit “sluggish” on the 9650, even with 512 MB of RAM. Definitely cause for concern for Bold 9700 and Pearl 3G owners who only pack half that amount of memory. We’ve got a couple more images ready for you after the break.
