Best Buy Mobile Buyer's Guide shows BlackBerry Storm 9550, no
With the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 making it into the latest Best Buy Mobile's Buyer's Guide, it looks like a launch is imminent. We have seen one of the earlier rumored release dates of October 21st go by, and the handset has not even been introduced by Verizon. Of course, after last year's fiasco with the introduction of the first-gen model, Big Red can be forgiven for wanting to make sure that the new unit is 101% ready for prime time before it takes the training wheels off. Anyway, as we said, the sequel unit is in Best Buy Mobile's booklet but with one glaring error. It seems that on the way to the printer, the "2" was dropped from the name of the device making it the BlackBerry Storm 9550. Looks a little naked without the sequel marker. Another omission is the price. But even without the "2" and the price, it is more than apparent that we are extremely close to the launch of RIM's improved touchscreen model. The next rumored launch date is October 25th. If nothing happens then, it will probably mean a November release date.

really just depends on what you want.... the Imagio is an amazing review and everyone i know that has it loves it. the mobile tv feature is better on this phone then any other VZW phone before it. Also the windows 6.5 is smooth and really easy to use. The Droid will be a little more customizable with its open development and widgets. but windows phones have always been pretty easy to customize with diff themes and such. also the Imagio has that beautiful 5.0 megapixel. So id say really the biggest thing you want to ask yourself is if you want a keyboard or not.

Narley You dont have to reply to "Musthavdroid", It's spam. If you look at all his posts, all he ever says is the same thing. Which means it's probably a bot from Motorola or Verizon (Most likely Verizon) getting feedback. He/She has 40+ posts saying the same thing and never replies. It's typical marketing scheme.

VZW Accessories are labeled Storm 9550. There is no Storm 2. This is what the Storm was meant to be so this is The Storm.
