BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 emulator shows up in Verizon's system
Verizon employees usually get to spend some time with virtual devices through the aid of emulators so they can experience a device before they actually get it. From sales employees to technicians, pretty much anyone working under Verizon Wireless will have access to these emulators. Launch day is inching ever closer especially when the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 emulator made its way onto Verizon's system so employees can get a first hand look of the handset. It's mainly used to guide employees on the operation of the phone – even running through the software. With this already in place, we know that the 9550's debut is not too far away at this point.

has anyone noticed that all of the upcoming verizon phones have a 3G icon?? before it would say EVDO now it says 3G just like at&t and t-mobile phones. like for example the htc imagio from verizon has a 3G icon instead of evdo , now it looks like the storm 2 is also gunna have a 3G icon. i have the first storm and mine always says evdo the only time it changed was when i went to mexico instead of verizon in the screen it said telcel and instead of evdo i got EDGE.... anyways thats the first time i have seen that verizon does this...

Verizon started doing this with the Nokia Twist. That is the first phone to have the symbol 3G. Apparently there was confusion with non tech consumers asking what it meant and if Verizon had "3G", so now they are just making it more clear for non tech consumers. Almost all future devices will now read with 3G that have 3G signal in them.
