BlackBerry Storm2 to launch October 21st?
A leaked screen shot from Verizon's own intranet may be the key to discovering the launch date for the BlackBerry Storm2 9550. Before we give you the date, just a note on style. RIM and Verizon have decided to go with Storm2 as opposed to Storm 2, similar to the Touch Pro2. Now that we got that out of the way, Erictric was able to get a screen shot from Verizon's Intranet and it shows October 21st as being the launch date for the Storm sequel.

Big Red also lists some of the new features for the 9550, like Wi-Fi and enhanced typing with the improved SurePress (Piezio Technology, anyone?). Also interesting to note is that the handset will come with a 16GB microSD card (the original had an 8GB card) along with 2GB on board memory and 256MB of Flash. The pricing was not listed and this would be a good time to remind everyone that RIM and Verizon have not even introduced this phone yet to the public.

If you don't care, why bother to comment? As the saying goes; it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to post a comment and prove to all of us that you are!

So this is totally wrong. There is nothing in info manager right now even showing this phone. If it was coming out on that date, we would already have something showing it in the system. That doesn't even look like a page out of our system.... If you look, it is a device blog and not an actual internal webpage. Bogus stuff. Expect the phone early November. We have a 4th Quarter get together within the first two days and that will have something to do with the launch of this device just like it did last year....... People need to stop providing bad info......

Wow, just because your retarded and can't find the VZW Device Blog doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I found this page on my first try just by typing in "Storm2" in VZWeb... Just like exidor said.
