    Apparently their rolling it out in countries via Kies as we speak...

    Although there won't be a major change or difference from the current 2.3.3 most likely improved battery life.

    I've heard improved battery life and better signal which are two things that id really like because tbh the signal for internet and wifi is pretty poor, its a bit hard to compare from my hero as i switched from t-mobile to o2 but the wifi definitely seems worse as does gps

    also is that updating it straight from the phone or doing it via a computer?

    Yeah both of those two should definitely be in it.

    I think it would most likely be via Kies. It should be out by the end of this month, people who flashed their phone have 2.3.6. already :rant:

    Ok I've been trying for a few days to install whatsapp on my htc:
    1.Cannot find whats app in the market...random things appear on the search
    2. So I ended up downloading an apk file of whatsapp to my laptop and transferred it to my phone (and downloaded astro manager to open it) I went through all the stages but at the end it says that whatsapp couldn't be installed on this phone.
    3. I tried to download it from the android market from my laptop but it says there is no phone associated with my principal google account (altho I have put in the phone number etc). It is the same account I have on the phone etc

    how do i resolve the issue?

    What phone do you have and what version of Android is it running? According to a quick search WhatsApp needs at least Android 2.1 to run.

    Menu > Settings > About phone > Software information (or Android version or similar).

    If it's 1.5 then you'll need to update to 2.1 to get it.
