Also notice there are the axl games for like sodoku and the speed typing program.

    Verizon's 1XEV Technology is the same as 3G's technology in speed but in a side by side test 1XEV has shown to be a lot faster. Verizon is also working on newer technology that would be equivalent to 4G.

    And just because the picture doesn't have wifi symbol doesn't mean its not gonna be on storm 2, it could just be not activated. with that device in which the picture was taken.

    Storm Exchange

    This is kinda an off topic question but:

    Would it be possible for me to complain to Verizon about my Storm 1 and try to have them send me a free Storm 2 replacement (when they release it of course). Maybe do a similar process to what many people did when the Tour came out? Don't get me wrong, I love my Storm 1, but I think I'm more in love with the Storm 2.

    Do I have a chance?

    Thanks.

    I think Verizon sets up the screen to look the same for consistency. Look at this image of the tour:

    There are 3 emails, and the date is Thursday May 21.

    you are incorrect. the storm 2 pic shows the screen leads to the hard button and they are flat with the screen.

    I believe they were referring to the picture on the screen and not the phone itself

    If you notice the same date, message count etc are on both of them

    Not sure if anyone else noticed this.....BUT on Verizon's new commercial where hey are advertising the Storm 1 for $49, at the end of the commercial they show their line-up of BB phones and it shows TWO types of the storm. The normal Storm 1 and then one that looks just like the Storm 1 but is mostly chrome. Is this the storm 2??????? Wonder why they would do that

    FWIW, the only build so far that we've seen with the 3G indicator is .191; prior builds still say 1XEV

    See, that's exactly the thing. The 5.0.0.191 that leaked for the 9530 is for the 9530, plain and simple. It's utterly impossible that it was designed for a different phone, as it would never even install on hardware it wasn't designed for. Heck you can't even force a 9500 OS on a 9530, let alone an OS for a different phone.

    Working camera or not, the 9530 5.0.0.191 is most definitely designed for the 9530, and nothing else.

    3G is just a generic terminology, EV-DO is Verizon's 3G network. The 3G icon is likely a response to the widespread incorrect notion that 1XEV is in some way "not" 3G.
