    That's the only problem. But RIM has a reputation to uphold. Verizon's lag in releasing Official OS's provided by RIM is only hurting RIM's reputation because as Verizon Customer's most of us are already locked in (Contract wise) So RIM will show hey, we have a brand new touch screen and we have a brand new OS. Complain to your carrier.

    I agree plus VZW is committed to the Storm. If they weren't they would not be releasing Storm 2. Which while it pisses me they didn't get it right the first time, if they can come up with a better keyboard mechanism, wifi and a better browser would be fantastic for the consumer.

    Definitely indeed. And what I tell everyone is that Apple only has one phone which is the iphone. So they can pump every last dollar into apps and an OS upgrade a month. But RIM has so many different Model Blackberry's to keep updated that it is a much larger scale. But that's a different topic...But as you said yes...the first gen Storm was rushed for sales...a device belonging to the most used phone business wise and corporate wise has no wi-fi to connect to a corporations internal secured wireless network but instead has to use Verizon's data plan? It was rushed...verizon was not satisfied...thus the lack in OS upgrades until the agreement for a 2nd gen upgrade.

    Verizon knows it will not see sales by announcing hey we have an OS update for the storm...there is no possible marketing strategy for that. But in order to see figures and long lines at the Verizon store is to say ok, here it is...what you all been waiting for...Storm 2. the way it should have been released, with 5.0 software. I know I'll be online...would you Jlevy? lol

    I still hope we will see more leaked OSs but you are right they have certainly slowed down. Hopefully we will start seeing more official OSs hit the street from different carriers. I know Telus is about to release a new one shortly.

    Keep at it. The best inventions are the ones made by mistake. Who knows what you might stumble up upon.
