Attention Samsung BlackJack owners, starting today at 2 p.m., PST, you'll finally be able to get upgrade your current device to Windows Mobile 6. The update will be available as a free desktop download from Samsung's Web site and brings such enhancements as the full Microsoft Office Mobile Suite for viewing and editing documents, more robust calendaring, and support for HTML e-mail. You'll also get added capability for AT&T Video Share, the carrier's video-calling service.

You can download the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade here but again, please remember that it won't be available till 2 p.m. PST/5 p.m. EST, so just hold on for a few more hours. Also, don't forget to backup all your data since performing this update will wipe your smartphone, and you'll have to reinstall any applications you've downloaded to your device. Pain in the butt, I know, but look at it this way, it's cheaper than upgrading to the Samsung BlackJack II.
