BlackBerry Storm 2 to be the 9550?

BlackBerry Storm 2 to be the 9550?
Some information about the BlackBerry Storm 2 was given to BGR and while some of it is news, other parts simply rehash what we already know. For example, the Storm 2 will be given the 9550 designation for models heading to Verizon. It appears as though a 9520 model of the Storm 2 exists and could be offered by AT&T and/or Rogers.

The BlackBerry Storm 2 will be equipped with Wi-Fi, a 3.2MP camera, offer CDMA/EV -DO Rev. A, Quad band GSM/EDGE, and single band UMTS/HSDPA (2100MHz). The screen will be capacitive, like the original, with resolution of 360 x 480 pixels. Our original story about the sequel to RIM's first touchscreen device had mentioned a 5MP camera and a new TruePress typing system to replace the clicking SurePress keyboard. The camera appears to remain the same as the first handset and we have no information on TruePress. Pricing and release dates are still up in the air at this point, and there still is the question of whether or not buyers of the original Storm will get some type of "early adopter discount".
