BlackBerry Storm3 to feature LTE connectivity, new OS, and 1GHz processor?
Anyone who figured that the touchscreen/QWERTY slider BlackBerry Bold 9800 meant the end of the line for the BlackBerry Storm could be wrong. Right now, it is nothing but talk, but the words are exciting. The next Storm could be among the first LTE devices for Verizon and will run an OS that has been developed for the Storm only-not BlackBerry OS 6. The Storm3 could have 1GB of ROM and be powered by a 1GHz processor. The handset is allegedly being tested in a very private beta and will feature plenty of customizable options with tons of widgets. The touchscreen is said to be a Synaptics screen offering a lighter touch experience. Again, it sounds like RIM is finally "getting it".

I hope not. I love my Storm 2, and the clickable screen is killer. I know a lot of people hate it, but for me that was the selling point. I'll be honest though, I do like my Droid UI much better. But if they can make 6.0 work and bring a little more to the appworld, I'll check it out.

They ARE working on a new OS that is specifically for touchscreen phones. Saw it at a Verizon agent fair last month. But they were pretty mum on the hardware.

I will 100% not buy another Blackberry after using a the Droid phones, if this is VZW's LTE Launch phone, I will be a little dissapointed.

I think Blackberry has a better email setup.

I hope blackberry has complete different redesign this time. I don't know anyone happy with the storm, and all of those people are upgrading to Android phones Verizon has to offer. There really is no comparison!

I love my Storm2 9550. Portrait with SureType...super smooth. Anyway, I'm glad there are a few new rumors about the Storm line-up, I'm a fan.

Blackberry needs a touchscreen phone to get in the game with android and iPhone they got business on lock but their lacking fun to use touchscreen hopefully they'll have a big hit with this one the first true 4g device sorry sprint that's the way I see it

Your view of 4G is very short-sighted, bet the new tag line is true to you too.

your right lte is sooo much better and faster then wimax i cant wait until i only have to wait 0.01 seconds for my page to load instead of 0.02 seconds i really dont have that extra time to waste in my super fast paced life

I never said wimax sucked its not true 4g even sprint said they may upgrade lte in the future don't why you were you insulted by what I said I'm sure you have an evo which better than what I have

all im sayin is once the speeds are wimax and faster there is no noticeable difference on a phone maybe on a computer but not on a phone

If WiMax isn't true 4G then neither is LTE. They are both the next generation in mobile tech, hence 4G. Sprint/Clear is covering the bases by keeping the LTE option available, it's not a declaration that WiMax isn't 4G.

Ok, Here is the deal. I only use the Blackberry in the IT environment. I own a Blackberry storm, XV6800, Touch Pro, and a Droid; ofcourse the Droid being the current activated handset. However alot of companies are going windows just because of the ease of integration and less cost factor. I dream of the day android could become a viable buisness option. As far as blackberry being anything other then a glorified e-mail machine; I cannot support the blackberry as a mainstream handset. I must say; at least RIM is trying but just can't seam to grasp what is going on out there. I personally will not be getting a storm 3, now lets talk about the droid x.

I stopped reading after seeing "IT" and "XV6800" in the same breath as your opinion became irrelvant after that. That phone is god-awful.

I loved the phone, considering back then not much was out to speak of on the Verizon network. and as far as my profession goes. I sorry your a hater for an IT guy. i'm proud to be a Tech guy and i'm not going to let anyone rain on my parade for being an IT guy.
