    BlackBerry Ready With a Sequel to Storm?


    A BlackBerry without a keyboard is here to stay as Research In Motion reportedly prepares to launch a follow up to its BlackBerry Storm phone.

    Storm 2 could debut on Verizon around September this year, according to a report in SlashGear and it could add features such as Wi-Fi that is missing in the first version.


    Via Wired.com

    IMO Verizon Blows they will probably tells go F ourself but if they discontinue the storm #1 they have no choice but to replace with #2 ??? They did that with my Moto Q9m and replace with the Q9C or whatever that sucked just as much then got the almighty Crackberry Curve 8330 and now the Storm From E-bay im in a win win situation.

    PS we wont be seeing a os update probably now with this info. BBCrackman's hybrid will be the official. V 3.5

    With two chips running to get the WiFi you will probably see the "Low Battery" warning shown in the first picture...much like the battery problems with iPhones.

    According to my friend who is tech support at VZW the two top complaints for the storm are:

    1. No Wifi
    2. Click on screen is inconsistent from Storm to Storm

    So I guess VZW does listen to their customers, kind of.

    Ha Ha yeah. Well i guess all we can do is hope for the best. I'm hoping Verizon will help us original Storm owners out with an upgrade to the Storm 2, if it does come out.

    Well, personally. I don't think verizon will sell a phone that has WiFi. IF they do, they will find a way to control it so you have to pay for it to be active and usable. And I also agree. If this is true then I can really see the beta leaks for the Storm stopping completely because they will be working on the 'Storm 2'. This is actually bitter sweet news. imo.

    From sources within RIM it has been confirmed the VZW has requested the Storm 2 have wifi. Whether or not VZW restricts it is anyones guess but it has been confirmed by inside sources Storm 2 will definitely have wifi. From the same source, RIM is actively working on new OS's every day. As a matter of fact he stated that it won't be long until the 5.0 is released on the current Storm. Whether or not we see leaks is another question but VZW and RIM are investing quite a lot of time and money to ensure the Storm's success.

    I highly doubt that. It may happen with other storm users on another carrier but VZW sucks at releasing an official. This is one of those, I'll believe it when I see it type of deals.

    I wouldn't have posted it if it didn't come from a trusted source. That being said, you're right, I'll believe it when it's loaded on my device.

    Oh, I'm not calling you out. Sorry if it seemed like that. I just don't believe anything when it comes to VZW and 'releases'.
