No one here really knows all that... we're a user to user, community support forum.
Most likely the lack of OS 6 support for the 9630 has to do with device memory space...
And who knows, the browser could be updated after all.

From my understanding, the BlackBerry 9630 will not get OS 6 due to memory constraints. The OS on other devices is over 200MB in size, so it's simply too big to fit on the 9630.
As to getting the new browser on the BlackBerry 9630 and other devices that are not being updated to OS 6, I asked the RIM VPs who were in charge of this while I was at the BlackBerry Wireless Enterprise Symposium (WES) in the spring and was informed that the browser is fully integrated into OS 6 (also called BlackBerry 6) and would not be implemented into older devices.
This isn't to say it will never happen, but from my understanding and from what I was very clearly told at WES, I wouldn't hold my breath.
