    Blackberry Storm 2 due in September, has WiFi

    Advertisement




    slashgear.com: BlackBerry maker Research in Motion is prepping a new version of its only touchscreen phone, the BlackBerry Storm, as soon as this September, according to reports. The new phone is set to bring improvements over the current offering, especially with the addition of WiFi.

    SlashGear is citing an unnamed source (claiming it's the bee's knees), as giving them "their assurances that the BlackBerry Storm 2 would have WiFi, and would be an even better pro-consumer device than the first Storm." There's no wonder the biggest drawback of the BlackBerry Storm was the lack of WiFi, of course, after the clickable touch screen and the sluggish software.

    Besides the September launch date and extra WiFi (which was quite obvious) not much detail was passed on. But if RIM does launch a new BlackBerry Storm this September, that will leave the current devices (10 months old in September) obsolete. That's not even a year since the original product launch in November 2008 (even Apple leaves one year between product cycles).

    So will they then in turn be discontinuing production of the current model? That's pretty crazy. 10 months

    i think the bigger drawback is the verizon exclusivity. who wants to be with vzw?

    anyway, if it has a faster processor and they fix the stupidity of the first one, and they cut the exclusivity, maybe.. just maybe i'll consider a bb again.

    otherwise, this september release, aka "let's try this again" release, will be ehh.

    Yeah I agree. VZW really knows how to take the fun outta a blackberry. Hopefully other carriers will pick up the new storm2. In my opinion VZW is the worst carrier in the nation. Good thing there not touching the alltel where I live.

    Now will this be full GSM or just like the current storm?
    And I hope they improve the reaction and the speakers on it as well.
    These guys need to paying close attention to the forums, i.e Pinstack, crackberry etc. so that they know what to focus on. If they do that they will have a device everyone will sure to pay good dollars for.

    But anyway. Thanks for the september release. I was getting a little impatient waiting for the wifi storm.

    Been waiting for my tmobile contract to run out so i can get a storm. Is there anything in the rumors about the size of this new storm? One of the things I didn't like about the storm was how thick it was. The width and length is fine just the thickness. I wish it was just as thick as the 8900. I'm still contemplating on just maybe staying with tmobile and getting the 8900 but really want a touchscreen and I will not get anything thats not a blackberry. What to do. But I keep on feeling like I wanna wait as long as possible because I bought the Pearl when it first came out and then after about 2 months, I started not liking my phone anymore because they came out with pearls with wifi and gps and better colors, etc. The only thing I liked about my pearl after that was the fact that my pearl (8100) was able to change the track ball color. What to do? Any new updates for 8900 coming soon? anyone know? new colors? or features?
