    Hey new to the site, saw it through Crackberry.com...........so do you think that Verizon or RIM will help out the original Storm owners in some way shape or form? Maybe a major discount on the new phone or maybe an even switch?:Eyecrazy: or will they leave us out to dry :crucified:

    besides with our data plans why woudl we need the wifi? we get internet anywhere as it is

    So no slide out keyboard? (I'm not upset either way)

    Also, what are the specs of this phone? If it's using the same processor, same amount of RAM, and running 5.0, what are the odds that this phone is just going to be another flop?

    If all that has changed is 5.0 and no click screen, then I really don't see a point in purchasing this phone. Could we get some more info?

    Processor Speed?
    Memory (ram and storage)
    I do believe the 5.0 OS was confirmed?

    Bad choice #1 The Iphone was first offered to VZW and they turned it down (the old 'that will never fly' type attitude.) So the push was to get out a product that would be an 'Iphone' killer.
    Bad choice #2 Hype up the new BBStorm. And that they did. Had everyone hungry like Homer Simpson. It was suppose to be stable but quite a few good people lost their jobs when the press got a hold of it. Again, thank God for BBOS.
    Bad (?) choice #3 Buy one, Get one. Here starts the Big picture. People are still curious and a lot want to try it for themselves. And let's not forget that there are developers out there fixing our problems for us. Even Reps were given the ok to casually suggest alternative options for upgrades.
    Good 4 them #1 Every Storm comes with a Data plan. Get everyone to have at least two and they make more money.
    Bad choice #4 If you can't beat'em, join'em. Look at all of the new acquisitions and trading of assets. The hope is to get the Iphone back on board. Don't worry about all the problems with the different networks, we'll figure that out later. [Last year VZW allowed Iphone users and others to switch their phone over just to get those customers. It was an IT nightmare.]
    Finally - Upgrades have always played in their favor and this is not going to change now. You just don't get something for nothing. Even if you kick, shout or complain they may give you the Storm2 but it's gonna cost you. It may a line change, a contract extension or just the plain ol' headaches of having a product that is still a work-n-progress.

    I4One say: Don't advertize. Give all that money to the hard working people who know what we want and how to get it right.
    I would like to record another bad choice...

    CEO makes a statement back in 2008 they Verizon will join the OHA (Open Handheld Alliance) then Vzw changes their minds and allows T-Mobile to pick up the Android OS. I don't know if any of you have seen the new HTC Magic running the Android 1.5 (cupcake) but it's amazing.

    Great article! Wouldn't we see a WIFI symbol on the screen? Do we have an ETA on the documentation for this badboy? Thanks BBOS!

    I don't think we would have seen the wifi symbol if he didn't have it turned on. Hope that it does tho. All we can do is guess

    For the S1 users there better not be a price at all. Should be an upgrade of minimum value given that this would also be occuring prior to contract end dates and so on. Very depressing until we hear how this will be accomplished. VZW will have to do some serious DAMAGE control and in these times of lost jobs and people having to make decisions about what to spend money on....I don't see an S2 at the top of many priority lists. But I could be wrong......

    I think it was already confirmed by CX or radio on CB that it WILL have wifi
