New BlackBerry devices get outed?
You know those great videos of the BlackBerry Storm 2? Well, the guy behind them has some more news for us. First, he says that RIM plans to release 16 devices in 2010. That is a lot of different models to hit the market in a year and let's hope that it is not just a case of the Canadian manufacturer throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks.

Three of the models were discussed with a little detail. The first is the BlackBerry Essex. This is a model that we have reported on earlier as a BlackBerry Tour with Wi-Fi and a trackpad. There is also a chance that RIM could be making this a touchscreen model. The Striker 9100 is supposed to be a slimmer, trimmer version of the BlackBerry Pearl and will have 3G connectivity and a trackpad. This model could end up with as a flip phone. The BlackBerry Curve 8530 has already been seen in a spy shot of Verizon's inventory screen. It is a CDMA variant of the 8520 with Wi-Fi included.

RIM has made a point of listening to what the customer wants and following through. A good example of that is the BlackBerry Storm 2 where improvements have been made to the SurePress typing system and Wi-Fi has been added. It seems RIM wants to make sure that there is a different BlackBerry model for everyone.
