BlackBerry Storm 2 9520 poses for pretty pictures
We have already shown you photos of the Verizon branded BlackBerry Storm 2 9550. With the time growing closer to an expected October/November launch, it was time for pictures of the Vodafone version of the phone, the 9520, to make an appearance. One picture shows the comparison between the current Storm and the new model. The 9500 has separate function buttons on the front bottom of the device while the new Storm 2 has an area on the bottom for touch response. The Storm 2 also is a little sleeker with less use of chrome around the sides, and a new design covers the buttons on the side of the 9520.

The changes between the Storm 1 and 2 and more than just merely cosmetic ones. We can tell by one of the snapshots, that the Storm 2 in the photo is running on the BlackBerry OS 5.0.0.138. That build is expected to offer tabbed browsing among other new features. The Storm 2 also will be equipped with Wi-Fi. The temperature will go up once we get a definitive launch date on both sides of the Atlantic. And of course, we are still awaiting info on pricing.
