-- which tends to have an inside line on these matters -- is claiming that a new firmware for the awesome-but-pricey X1
is just around the corner. That in itself isn't really notable since we've seen new firmwares for the device hit in the past
, but the juicy morsel here seems to be that the latest build will include "support of BlackBerry connection," which we take to mean integrated BlackBerry Connect
. That'll certainly improve the X1's street cred in the business world, but we can't help but wonder whether it's too late to eke out a major sales push on this one -- especially now that buzz over the X2
has swelled to a rolling boil.
