BB OS 5.2 And 6.0

BGR’s incredible ninjas have uncovered another secret: Research In Motion has begun to work at BlackBerry OS 6.0 although OS 5.0 is just at the beginning. According to the source, BlackBerry OS 5.2 will become available later this year, while OS 6.0 has an unknown release date, but we’re betting on a next year release. BlackBerry smartphones are good and RIM’s market share in the US is really good, however, the company needs to take itself to the next level and gain more on the European market.
The Boy Genius guys cannot say more for the moment, even though we should expect more information sooner rather than later. I’m simply curious what RIM is doing besides that ugly half-touch half-QWERTY phone that we’ve seen last month. RIM should develop a phone with cutting-edge hardware as well as state-of-the-art software if it wants to outrun Apple’s iPhone. Could the Canadian manufacturer be the first to crush the Cupertino crew? Boy, I’d sure enjoy seeing this!

Few things that alot of people talk about if you own a BlackBerry or not doesnt matter!!!
OTA or "over the air"
a link that can be accessed from your mobile device's browser. Your file will download directly to your device "Over The Air"

This is your Blackberry's operating system. The tour released with version 4.7 and now can be updated to 5.0. The version of your OS can effect the type of theme you can install.

Today or "hidden today"
A feature in the theme that lists either calendar items or unread messages when you scroll over corresponding icons.
Today is a type of default layout that shows messages and calendar icons along with the "today" lists, separate from the standard icons.

QuickLaunch is a great paid ($4.99) app that launches a menu on your homescreen that has a list of shortcuts to various apps, and links for easy access. Most of my themes launch this app (if you have QL installed) when you hit the spacebar on your keypad.

Wallpaper Friendly
This just means the theme allows full or nearly full visibility of your background image, or wallpaper.
