I was talking with Sprint's tech support people yesterday and they told me that BlackBerry Connect 2.0 for Pocket PC was going to be released on Nov. 1st from Sprint and would be available for the 6600's as an upgrade. Apparently no price or plan changes, just a software update to the phone.

I specifically asked about an EV-DO upgrade for the 6600's and the guy had no clue, but he was completely confident (and his system told him) there there would be an upgrade for BlackBerry Connect availble Nov. 1. Hopefully there is an OS or EVDO upgrade included with it.

O2 released an OS upgrade today with BT3900 and BlackBerry Connect 2.0. Crossing my fingers.

If anyone else can confirm this, let us know.
