More evidence of October 21st BlackBerry Storm2 9550 Verizon launch

Not only is the dummy model being shipped to Verizon stores, an act that usually occurs within a week or two of a product launch, but Crackberry was also able to snag a screenshot of some Verizon internal email which indicates an October 21st 2009 launch date for the phone. By the way, if you want to know how to distinguish a picture of the original Storm 9530 with the sequel 9550, take a look at the 4 buttons just underneath the screen. On the first-gen model, the phone, memo, back and end buttons are distinct from the screen. On the new version, those 4 keys are actually flat and are part of the bottom of the screen.

I was told by a VZW rep on online purchasing, that the storm will be available for preorder on saturday. dont know how credible that is but thats what the rep told me to wait till sat. so i can order it online.

Well, the applications are developed by third parties, and I think the massive response to the app store is a great thing! As with any open project, there's bound to be tons and tons of garbage, but there are some great gems out there -- games, educational tools, even small music notation applications! A lot of them are very great. I think most people have a very negative view of the iPhone, which is really sad... it seems that they hate the iPhone either because it's an Apple product or because so many people use it. I was the same way. Then, I entered adulthood and stopped being a tool and started using one! Have a nice day!

SurePress = epic fail One of the only things I see holding this phone back is the LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME Surepress. The capactive part of the screen works amazingly, but then you have to smash the screen to get it to do everything. When it comes to hammering out long texts and e-mails??? What a PITA!!!!!!!! Get rid of SurePress and they've got a winner on their hands.

i use the surepress just fine. and i press the buttons lighter on my storm than i did on my old voyager, which is better on my fingers. :-). i just don't see the issues everyone else has with their storms. :-?
