I found this on BGR and didn't see a thread on the news. And I will need two of them please I am ready to pre order now please.
SlashGear reported on a rumor they heard about the next generation BlackBerry Storm launching with Wi-Fi on Verizon Wireless. Wexxx8217;ve been able to confirm that rumor a pretty long while ago, so yes, the Storm 2 will launch on Verizon with Wi-Fi. SlashGear was correct in their report and itxxx8217;s 100% confirmed. Something not reported though, and now confirmed to us by two independent sources, is the new screen tech involved. Wexxx8217;re told that it improves the screen enormously and makes typing really pleasurable. Better yet? You can leave it to RIM to come up with the dumbest names possible because we heard theyxxx8217;re ditching SurePress and calling this one TruePress. Donxxx8217;t take that as fact, but it is interesting that both our sources had mentioned the same thing to us. So, the BlackBerry Storm 2 will launch with Wi-Fi and a brand new screen technology, and, if we were a betting bunch wexxx8217;d wager it will have a 5 megapixel camera.
According to a source very close to the issue, Verizon has given the go for RIM to release the BlackBerry Storm 2 in September of this year. The followup to the groundbreaking Storm that was released last year as the first touchscreen Blackberry, SlashGear has been told that the new Storm 2 addresses one of the biggest criticisms of the first smartphone and of Verizon devices in general, in that it will support WiFi.
While wexxx8217;re not able to name our source, we can say that wexxx8217;ve no doubts regarding the veracity of their information. The source gave us their assurances that the Storm 2 would have WiFi, and would be an even better Pro-consumer device than the first Storm. We wonder if RIM and Verizon will make any changes to the touchscreen, a common point of complaint for the first-gen devices; comments he dropped lead us to believe WiFi isnxxx8217;t the only thing RIM and Verizon have up their sleeve with the Storm 2.
The original Blackberry Storm debuted as Verizonxxx8217;s challenger to the iPhone, remains one of their flagship devices. With the release of Blackberry App World, the Storm is in an even better position to make a dent in Applexxx8217;s market share. The launch of the Storm 2 with WiFi and an improved touchscreen could draw both consumers and business users alike in to Verizon.
