Looks Like Old BlackBerry Handsets Wont Get BlackBerry OS 7

If you’re rockin’ a BlackBerry Torch, Tour, Bold 2 — or really, anything older than the just—announced Bold 9900 and Bold 9300 — we hope you’re nice and comfortable with BlackBerry OS 6. If we’re catching RIM’s drift here at BlackBerry World correctly, that’s where you’re staying.

From what we’re hearing from RIM, only the 9900, 9300, and any devices released thereafter will tote the brand new OS 7. While such things occasionally change with time (be it through a reversal on the company’s part, or clever finagling by the hacker crowds), anyone looking to heed to OS 7’s siren songs might be looking at an upgrade. You know what time it is.
