Current Storm 2 model claimed to be "awesome"

Current Storm 2 model claimed to be
A source providing RIM-related info, Salomondrin, apparently has us as one of its must reads of the day. After perusing our lukewarm preview of a preproduction unit of the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550, he responded by saying, "Yes, we all saw that great Phonearena review with the logo on the back,but the hardware and software were a little too old, so somethingseemed a little strange to say the least. Anyhow, we got a hold of abrand new Verizon Storm 2 and its awesome." First, we need to correct Salomondrin. We did a preview of the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550, not a review. In the beginning of our preview, we did note that the model we had was a preproduction unit and likely to change. Today's picture of the 9550 with the Verizon logo on the back does show that Big Red  is indeed going to be offering the handset. But we all already knew that. As far as what the final version of the Storm 2 is like, we hope it will be "awesome" performing too, and we are looking forward to getting the finished product in our hands so we can publish a review.

I think he's talking about the moto device that Verizon is getting. Shules/Tao/Droid... or whatever they care calling it this week. I'm pretty sure that's what he meant.

well the storm 1 was awesome, i don't see why the storm 2 wouldn't be.

Yes freezing up constantly, random reboots, bad touch screen, slow internet browser. It was awesome! I'm a bb fan, but the storm was horrible. There's no way I'd get the storm 2.

The Storm was awesome? I run, test, and have used every BB out there and the Storm was one of the worst phone experiences ever. Even with the updated OS on it, the memory leaks continue to the point I can't use the device for business purposes. While the Storm 2 may be an improvement over the first attempt at a touch screen device for RIM (anything would be an improvement over the release time of Storm 1), I'll stay skeptical until proven otherwise. As for the raving review by the person mentioned in the article, it's an opinion. Everyone is entitled to them. And I do hope the Storm 2 is a good device. For now I'll stick to my Tour and soon to be Bold 2.

Way to be egotistical snobs to a experienced industry insider trying to give some credibility to your site! PA is surely run by children.
