    Storm to be discontinued?

    woha...can not believe, what I am reading here, Storm to be discontinued soon? To be replaced by what?

    RIM Hit by Storm Concerns | Technology | Financial Articles & Investing News | TheStreet.com

    "Investors and analysts said there was speculation among traders about a report that indicated orders for the Storm were cut or cancelled."

    "The rumor of cancellations could also be a sign that Verizon is making room for a new device"

    Storm 1.... Not storms overall! They already got rid of it! The Mom and pop cell company's like Inland are picking it up.

    I have to agree with Jason on this. What probably happened was this... This following statement was made in public "the storm 1 has been completely discontinued, we are burning through stock, and fru stock and then moving on" which turned into "VERIZON is discontinuing the storm! They are no longer going to sell blackberry(on somesites)" I would have to say this was reference only to the storm 1

    ya id have to agree with jason and jnespa, the rumors would translate that into the storm line itself is being discontinued. discontinuing the storm and not hearing any leaks of a replacement is hard to believe

    I doubt the 9550 is part of this. And, when a #2 of any device is launched it's only a matter of time until stock is depleted, the item is not re-ordered, and it's discontinued. It's the nature of the industry.

    Yeah but the storm would be a sad loss for very few.

    I agree. Once the Storm 2 came out...why would VZW continue stocking the Storm 1. I wouldn't be that surprised if RIM was decided to stop producing a Storm 1...whats the purpose of having both ?

    ...my 2 cents...
