    Hi,
    Should be released by the end of September but expect some leaked versions to start appearing very soon.
    Will keep you posted.
    Kind Regards,

    OS6 won’t be released for the 8520 as confirmed by the following information on the RIM website:

    "Compatibility with Existing BlackBerry Smartphones

    BlackBerry 6 will debut on the new BlackBerry® Torch™ smartphone (announced today) available from AT&T on August 12 and it is also designed to run on select BlackBerry smartphones already in market. Subject to carrier certifications in the months ahead, the new OS is expected to be available for the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700, BlackBerry® Bold™ 9650 and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 3G, as well as future BlackBerry smartphones."

    The 8520 will not support OS6 according to the current information provided by RIM.
