totally agreed rookietraider.
slider? I DONT LIKE SLIDER~~~~~~~~~~
The storm 3 is not a slider. The slider phone is the bold family I believe that may be going threw a name change during release but its not a storm. I need updates on the Storm 3!

BlackBerry Storm 3 Launching Q4 With Revamped SurePress, Storm 4 in 2011?
By Simon Sage on Tuesday, May 11th, 2010 at 9:37 AM PST In BlackBerry, Rumors
The BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider and the 9670 clamshell are rapidly approaching, but later this year tipsters say we’ll see another touchscreen slate from RIM in their Storm family, and another still in 2011. Take this all with a grain of salt scoop of poutine. Yes, you need that much sodium for this rumour, because there’s no precedent and no proof. With that said, the BlackBerry Storm 3 is supposedly in the final stretch of development and should be ready in Q3 or Q4 with a significant update to the SurePress clicking touchscreen mechanism, described as being “perfect”. If the leap is as big as from the original Storm 9530 to the Storm2 9520, it could actually be an outstanding implementation. Aside from that, the Storm 3 will be running the shiny new OS 6.0 and have a focus on media and gaming, evidenced by a version of The Sims preloaded.
Further down the line is the Storm 4, which will arrive in 2011 with a magnetic compass to enable augmented reality apps, a 5 megapixel camera, and an improved GPS chip (maybe that S-GPS we saw on the way to the LG Ally). It does seem a little weird that the 9670 clamshell would launch with a 5 megapixel camera, but the Storm 3 wouldn’t and the Storm 4 following it would. Barring lower-end devices like the Curve 8500 series, all of the top-tier BlackBerrys should pack 5 megapixel cameras from here on in.
Between the other unreleased devices and the BlackBerry Cobalt tablet, it’s hard to even think about 2011 at this point, but with the Pearl family refreshed, the Bold about to get theirs, it only leaves the Storm and the Curve due for a tune-up, and even then, we don’t know how the clamshell will be branded – Curve is still a possibility. Regardless of whether or not these rumours are true, I look forward to seeing what RIM does with SurePress next, given the amount of effort they’ve put in to making it work. SurePress has been a hard sell for folks who are familiar with traditional touchscreens, but it’s still one of the most innovative and unconventional things RIM has done in a long time; it would be really rewarding to see it finally succeed.
Rumor: Possible Specs & Details For BlackBerry Storm 3
by the BerryReview Team on Jun 28th, 2010 at 3:10 pm EST
With the latest rumors and whispers from RIM everybody is wondering what they will do with the Storm line. We have already seen the 9800 as what RIM will do with the Bold line but many people are wondering if RIM will maintain a touchscreen only device on the market. Salomondrin has been pretty solid in terms of rumors in the past and the latest word he heard on the street is all about the BlackBerry Storm 3. The tale he spins sounds amazing and I am really hoping RIM is planning on actually releasing this device. It includes all the goodies from LTE to a 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM.
So far the preliminary specifications and details that Salomondrin posted are:
What do you think? If RIM would to release such a device would you buy it?
- Its being tested by a very limited team (preventing leaks).
- The phone’s shell is still the Storm 2’s shell with different guts though (To make it hard to identify if the phone is lost or photographed).
- It does have a 1ghz processor.
- 8 GB internal memory.
- 512MB flash memory was what they saw first, but apparently they are now playing with these test phones and have over 1GB of flash memory.
- It won’t run on OS 6.0. Its going to be running on an OS of its own. <– Really exciting
- The phone does have the ability to run widgets and you can personalize it A LOT.
- 5 MP camera still on it as off now, but like we saw on the 9670, this can change.
- The screen will be something new we haven’t seen yet (new input mechanism) ,but it won’t work like the Storm 2. Yes, it will have SURE-PRESS, but I’m not sure how they are archiving it this time.
- Its going to be Verizon’s 1st or 2nd LTE phone. They aren’t sure if the Android phone will be first or the Storm at this point.
