Is this the BlackBerry Storm 3?
posted by Alan F. / Sep 20, 2010, 4:20 PM
Earlier, we reported that the Storm 3 would feature the BlackBerry 6 OS and the new WebKit browser, both of which would be essential to the device competing against the iPhone 4 and Android. Translating some of the words on the papers under the phone brings out the word "resistance", which could be a sign that the clickable "SurePress" technology is back again.
Speculation centers on a 1GHz processor for the phone, along with LTE capabilities for Verizon's 4G pipeline, and support to operate as a mobile Wi-Fi Hot Spot.

There is no way possible that the Storm 3 will have LTE connectivity. I wouldn't expect to see an LTE-compatible device until at least mid-2011.

You'd think they'd learn after the first two mistakes...

The Storm 2 was the best device RIM made in my opinion. The software was much more stable, the "clickable" screen was greatly improved. The only thing missing was the WebKit browser. If they beef up the specs, even just a little bit, they could still have another winner on their hands. It has to have at least 1GB, 5MP camera, and 800 x 460 on the display. RIM has got to stop aiming for the bottom and calling it their "flagship" device. Think big!

i loved my storm. At this point though they need to go for not just " good" specs, which is all a 1ghz processor and a 5mpx camera would be when it comes out... they need to go for high end, like maybe push a dual core, 12mpx with 1080p recording, full flash support,a gig of system ram, a ton of storage space, and spending some money in their apps department to get some more great apps in there. That would be the "wish list" anyways (for any phone LOL). If they pushed that much hardware in it, it would be a hit with the tech enthusiasts regardless on top of blackberry lovers.

that phone was horrible.. pobobly vzw's biggest blunder ever. i owned one until the tour came out and had it swapped out twice and hated it more then any phone i have used to date. some people did like it and not have trouble but most did. vzw launched it at the time when the i phone was its biggest so they rushed its production to make it for the holidays. if rim actually released it they way and when they did it would have been much better then it was. However, this picture shows a track pad and what looks like a greatly improved screen size and feel to the phone I think if rim stepps up and surprises people they could really have something. especially with an lte storm 3. i predict it will do very well this fall/winter!

The storm 1 and 2 both had 3.5 inch screens. Not 3.2. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Are you kidding me? The storms had only 3.2 inch displays. I would know because i had the storm 1 then i got the iphone 3g through at&t. There was a difference in screen size as the iphone was larger.

I talked to a vze rep...they told me certain phones will be LTE enabled when 4g rolls out to places where its available.

Who cares if this is LTE or not, it's made by a dying brand. Later BlackBerry you had a good run.

RIM is nothing like Palm. Until companies can have as much control over iOS, Android, or WebOS as they do with Blackberry, RIM will still have a very strong business following. BES and BBM are great extinction insurance. It will at least buy them a little time. But if they don't beef up the specs and the BB app world, they will be gone in three years.
