I have been getting tons of email’s about when the OS 5.0 is coming out for other devices now that the Storm 9530 update is out.  The absolute truth is I do not have a clue at this point and time.  When I know an exact time I will surely post it.  In the meantime RIM® has released support document KB17984 which lists what devices will be eligible to get the 5.0 OS.  Some restrictions and possible restrictions are listed below. Lets see what happens over the next few days/week or months. Hopefully soon though!
