What? You think, could this be true? Well seems like it is! According to Crackberry, Verizon Wireless will be rolling this update out by Oct 25th. To me this makes perfect sense, upgrade the OS for the Storm 1 and make those unavailable to get Storm 2 with a fully functional Device.
Now why I think is true?, well just got an email talking about the upcoming official release of OS 5.0. stay tuned for more information.
