It's always interesting to get a leaked photo of a carrier's inventory system. While all of the listings are not written in stone, it still gives you a good idea of what handsets might be coming down the road. In the case of Verizon, we see a couple of BlackBerry devices that many are interested in hearing about. The BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 is listed which dovetails perfectly with the expected release date of September 29th for business accounts and October 14th for the rest of us. Everything that we have seen from videos tells us to expect a better SurePress typing system than seen on the current Storm, plus Wi-Fi and a newer OS build. The Curve 8530 should be equipped with an optical trackball and Wi-Fi in a slimmer, sleeker case. Our crystal ball shows Verizon making a November launch of the 8530.

I bet the Pre on the red network will outshine and sell both of those

Outshine possible...outsell no way.

People always compare the Pre and iPhone to the Storm and now the Storm 2. I personally hope that Verizon does get the Pre because it is an excellent device, but I sincerely don't consider any BlackBerry to be in direct competition with the Pre or iPhone. They are in some ways similar, but really in the end are aimed at a different type of user. The Storm is a great phone, as I'm sure the Storm 2 will be, but they are both Blackberrys with excellent multimedia capabilities. At the core you still have a BB and all that goes with it. The Pre and iPhone are great multimedia devices that also do email and applications very well. This "high end multimedia smartphone" is very much what Verizon's lineup is lacking, and the Storm does not entirely fill that void. Bring on the both of them, and make everybody happy!

I just hope the clicky screen is much improved over the first storm - I tried the Storm I (and I really did try to like it - I tried it for two weeks and used it a lot trying to get used to it) but in the end I returned it. I've got the Pearl Flip and like it a lot - it's just a little slow and the screen is a little small. So, I'm hoping this phone is all that it's cracked up to be.
