Re: os7 for torch 9800

Nope, it won't be. The 9800 does not have the hardware needed to support the new OS7.

 

It's been discussed

Re: os7 for torch 9800

i will wait until the new 9900 finallly arrives in namibia, and buy one.  the 9800 torch has an issue, the software have been reinstalled by a pro, now they reckon its the flexi cable, or whatever you want to call it.  eish
