The BlackBerry Storm 2 got itself a user manual, rumors floating about the Essex
It seems that interesting information always finds its way out of RIM offices. The latest update comes from a user manual that can be found in the leaked OS version 5.0.0.191 for the Storm. It´s written for the Storm 2, a model that hasn´t been officially announced yet, but is expected to hit the shelves in Europe this October. The document doesn´t reveal anything ground-breaking, but confirms the rumor that the new Storm 2 will feature Wi-Fi that along with the improved handling are expected to make the device more appealing to an increased number of people. The manual itself can be found via the first source link. Is this a sign that the official announcement is coming soon we wonder?

Another rumor speaks of a brand new BlackBerry, codenamed Essex. Information is still sketchy at best, but the word goes the device will be an improved version of the Tour 9630 that has been recently released in the US. All we´ve managed to find out this far is the handset will feature Wi-Fi and trackpad instead of a trackball. We have already heard of a similar model, called the Atlas, so it´s possible we are talking about the same device. We hope more information about this promising cell phone, inclusive of pictures, appears soon.

I purchased a BB Tour and love it, at the same time I'd love to see the next model come out. I probably wouldn't run out and buy it right away, but I only do 1 year contracts so I can buy the latest and greatest phone every 9 months if I want to. My only complaint about the BB Tour is the lack of Wifi. That said, I think the trackpad will be a great improvement over the trackball. I haven't had my phone that long and I'm already starting to have a few issues with my track ball not responding quite right.

Good ole BB. Don't everybody get the feeling you should wait at least 6 months after BB releases new phones, i mean, in case they one up it. Not even a full year and there's a storm 2 and another tour. They should allow upgrades every half year than.

with the rise of nokia messaging, BB should come up with a much better design and user interface.... the user interface in fact needs an overhaul.... honestly if nokia messaging could do bb-like-push email (it will), why would you want to buy a bb ? e71, the xpress music edition, the new n900, n97 etc etc vintage nokia design....

All the tour is, is the storm without the touch screen and trust me its to me no big deal.
