BlackBerry Storm 2 to be launched around October 25th?
BGR just received a leaked photo of Best Buy's inventory screen which shows that the dummy model for the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 will be in stock at the big box retailer on October 25th. Great, you're thinking, what about the real model with all the chips and battery and stuff like that? Well, the retail launch usually comes just a few days before or after the dummies are received. This means we can expect the Storm 2 to launch sometime around October 25th. All of you Storm fans who have been waiting to get your hands on the sequel will have to rearrange your calendar, but you have to admit that it is better that RIM releases a unit prepared for use right away, rather than the shape the first-gen Storm was left in last November when it was launched. Both RIM and Verizon have yet to actually admit that this phone exists, so you first-gen Storm owners can still hang on to your slim hopes that you might get a bone tossed to you for putting up with the pain.

omnia 2 and storm 2 are being tested for final firmware....which means what? That until that is completed they will not release them. Expect the Omnia 2 around the end of this month/early next month. Expect the storm 2 right around its release date from last year....the hold off is also to obtain adequte stock levels..

i Agree, The omnia 2 was said to be released a while ago. I have seen release dates for about atliest three times for it. I am guessing that somebody fakes a inventory list and fakes these.

Come on phonearena, stop with the bogus release dates! It's getting to be a habit. Can anyone recall the Sep 29th prediction for the Storm 2, or the July prediction for the Omnia 2? Let's try to be a bit more analytical, rather than just repeating whatever any random joe says!!!
