Despite RIM having its share of concerns, there's still a huge installed base for Blackberry smartphones and their platform. Now, their new operating system has leaked and it has some chances to catch up to the modern era …
A leaked version of BlackBerry OS 7.1 indicates that native mobile hotspot support is finally reaching the aging platform. The 3G sharing feature, which is a staple on most Android devices, looks like it will be integrated at the OS level. Or at least that seems to be the case according to an OSBB tipster, who has posted a leaked version of 7.1 for the Torch 9810.
This inclusion in its outgoing platform suggests that there's a good chance we'll see the feature included in the newly-renamed Blackberry 10 operating system when it's finally released. However, if you can't wait until then, or until 7.1 is released officially, the leaked software is available to install from the source link — just proceed with caution.
Some users would be quick to point out that many Android phones have 4G wi-fi sharing now, and have for months. However, like the intensely devoted iPhone fans, if it's about what you use and not its capabilities, the heart wants what it wants.
