Storm 3 followed soon after by Storm 4
BlackBerry Storm4 Soon Following After Storm3? - BlackBerry Leaks - Blackberry news, software, videos, info, reviews, previews


There is a new rumor regarding the building of a Storm4. It is supposed to released in 2011 and supposedly called an "iPhone killer", which we've heard many times before. The Storm4 is said to include the usual accelerometer and also a magnetometer, which will make the Storm4 a true compass. It is rumored to have a 5MP camera, upgraded GPS hardware, and speculated could support augmented reality applications, which could position RIM in a new untapped AR market.

Let's hear more about the Storm 3 first.

There are already previous threads about the Storm 3 -- I purposefully created a thread with emphasis on Storm 4.

You could read the article. Or I could post the snipits about Storm 3 here as well.

It is being reported that the BlackBerry Storm3 is in its final stages of completion. The rumor is that the Storm3 will be ready this year (2010) by Q3 or Q4. It is said that the Storm3 will still include the SurePress touchscreen as its predecessors, however, the new revision is supposed to be "perfect". We reported some time ago that RIM was working on the Storm3 with two model types: normal candy bar touch screen and one with a slide out full-qwerty keyboard. Once we saw the Slider 9800, we were unsure whether or not the Slider 9800 was a version of the Storm3 prototype.

Of course, it is clear now that the Slider 9800 is going to be a new Bold. Just as we heard before in our earlier report, RIM has scrapped the slide-out keyboard on the Storm series. The Storm3 will include BlackBerry 6 and is said to be with a strong emphasis on multimedia and gaming. It is said that EA and RIM are working closely to include The Sims pre-installed on the Storm3.
It will be interesting to see if any of this comes to fruition. Everyone knows very little about the upcoming Storm3 (we're even codename-less).
I tried the Storm 2, didn't like it, and frankly, the Storm 3 does not sound like enough of an improvement to make me too interested in it. I would be interested in the Storm 4 though.

As long as the Storm remains the sole property of Verizon, I will have no interest in it.

The Storm2 is awesome. I anxiously await the Storm4.

Storm3... Storm4.

RIM doesn't hit a deadline often so I would push them back 6 months :-)
(And you can't blame them)
