BlackBerry Storm2 9520 to launch this week; 9550 to be released in November by Verizon?This article contains unofficial information.
Now what about the Verizon BlackBerry Storm2 9550? We have reported that the phone is expected to launch on October 21st. A tipster has just told us that Big Red will not launch the Storm2 in October and that early November is a more plausible date. Remember that Verizon training video we showed you for the Storm2? Our tipster tells us that training classes are usually given to employees 1 to 2 weeks before a launch. The date on the video was October 21st. In addition, the device is not listed on the carrier's rebate forms and another tipster tells us that Verizon will not be training employees on the Storm until November 7th. Considering that last year, everyone complained that RIM and Verizon had rushed out the first-gen model, it probably is better to have patience and let the launch take place when the handset is absolutely, positively ready to go, right out of the box.
