    BlackBerry Storm 3 first INSIDE peak?


    BBLeaks disclosed a small piece of information of a possible BlackBerry Storm 3 being worked on....just when you thought storm 2 was almost perfect! The small bits that we have found out, include the following:

    • It may be a slider or may not. Currently 2 prototypes are available
    • It still will have SurePress technology
    • The screen has 16.7 million colors
    • Browser finally will have tabs, although details on location, etc., still unclear and may change
    • Current beta OS is 5.1.100.13
    • It will most likely have widgets like the HTC Sense UI does
    • 512 RAM
    • 19-second boot time
    • The overall phone will be thinner, similar to the iPhone
    That is what's currently rumored...As more information leaks or becomes available, we will keep you informed. The WES is coming in April of 2010....Hopefully we will hear more about this. What do you think? What do you wish for?

    the keyboard idea seems to be like the nokia n97 and that works pretty well. Seen as the storm 2 was basically just the storm with wifi, this actually sounds like they are putting a whole more effort into this iteration of the model.

    Like I said before the storm2 came out, I'll wait for the storm3. By then my contract will be over & upgrading to another storm, will actually feel like an uprade.

    Smile

    BGR stated that the non-keyboard version is 90% reality which virtually eliminates the slide out version. I have read this several times now from several sources.

    In addition, if it is thinner, there is no way to incorporate a slider. Just my 2 cents.

    My contract is up in August so I am just sitting back and waiting to see what's available...

    Merry Christmas!!! :arms::banana:

    No Slider on Storm 3

    I just switched to Moto Droid from Storm 2 and not because of the slider keyboard. I switched because the browser speed, dual processor (CPU + GPU) and the fluidity of the OS. therefore, imo, the Storm 3 Team should focus its resource on something that can match or exceed the Droid.

    Welcome to and I agree this looks relatively blah to me.

    If this does come out, in my opinion this will be pretty stupid and a bigger fail then the first Storm. RIM needs to do something different then incorporate two possible Blackberry devices into one. That's just stupid. Like I said on the show, every Blackberry is the same now. They won't change anything.

    To start with the software was just miserable when S1 was released. I am sure we all remember what a POS .65 was. More hardware problems you could shake a stick. Ranging from dust under screen to bad click, etc. I personally went through 12 S1's in less than 12 months. I have one word for that, PATHETIC.

    I couldn't agree more. RIM is just recycling old phones and putting a slight spin on the new ones. Look at the Tour 2, all that is the Tour with wifi and a trackpad. I could go on and on but seriously RIM needs to step up their game or others will step on them as they get passed by.

    I have to get that if they come out with This the specs will suprise is all by the time it hits production. I don't think rim will release anouter consumer based phone with out a healthy OS change. Or at least a new browser but that's just my two cents.
