For those unfamiliar, OS 8107 addresses the disappearing keyboard issue as well as other security fixes and patches. In addition, prior to receiving 8107 the user will be prompt for 7740, a previous update which also addresses some bugs e.g. voicemail notifications and Exchange 2003 email errors.
We received numerous reports of the DVP getting the update (although our is just showing 7740 as being the latest). If accurate, this is great news for Dell owners, especially as the OEM has unceremoniously dropped out from further smartphone development for the foreseeable future.
Hit us up on comments if your DVP has received 8107 in the last 24 hours.
Thanks, Arnout and Sven Z., for the tips!
