New pictures of the DROID 2, with a Curve 3, Storm 3 and tablet due by Christmas
It seems like we can't get enough leaked images showing off the new Motorola DROID 2 A955, as some were hidden in the Flash file on Verizon's DROID DOES site. So here are two new images of the full QWERTY Android smartphone, through it doesn't really show anything that we haven't seen before, as it is expected to be released by the end of August with Froyo 2.2 on board. The same tipster goes on to say that for the Holiday season you can plan to see a BlackBerry Storm 3 (as an update to the Storm 2) and a BlackBerry Curve 3 that will likely be a version of the 9300. Furthermore, it is also said there is a 10.1" screen tablet in the works that may be from RIM running a BlackBerry-based OS, or possibly the one from Motorola running Android. Hopefully Santa has enough room in his sleigh for all these new devices!

I can't wait to see what the Storm 3 will look like. Hopefully they have it set this time, but there's always room for improvement. Third time's a charm right?

I think Storm2's UI and screen design is just stupid, especially the screen. You have to press the screen down like clicking a mouse... that's just a lame design imo.

stand out to what? the functionality was literally "retarded" compared to any current smartphone out there. it was only good for point and click and drag. besides that it was painful to use.

i actually liked the improvements made to SureType on the second generation Storm it felt more refined and how it should have been the first time around with the 4 buttons instead of the one you had to push the whole screen down to click and the piezoelectric pressure board was a plus too i'd say. i think if RIM makes as many hardware improvements on the 3rd generation Storm as they did the 2nd and have it running BB OS 6 and some serious processing power then they MIGHT have something to bark up there with the big dogs, it'll probably be due to whether or not Verizon will Market it like a big dog in the end.

@Cali_E: I dunno. The Storm 1 was a total unmitigated disaster, but the S2 corrected all that BS. Storm 1= 1 sensor and 24 moving pistons for screen movement; S2= 4 sensors and 72 pistons. I had a S2 for a bit and could compose text/email/bbm like a champ. Really, if it weren't for BBs weak ass antiquated browser it would have been a kickass device. Here's hoping S2 is upgradable to OS 6.0

The idea of the storm was awesome. I had a storm1, and apparently mine was the only one that worked well. I had no problems with it what so ever. The biggest downfall of the storm is that it was just the same OS as the other blackberrys but on a touch screen. They really needed to redo the OS for the storm the first time because that OS wasnt primed for touch. On the touch screen. Once you get used to using it, hitting the wrong button becomes far and few between. I bet most of those that hated it never tried it for more than 5 minutes.

I am guessing those of you knocking the surepress screen have not really used one. I admit, its not for everyone, but having a Storm2 for almost a year, its actually a really nice feature. It almost gives the touch screen dual functionality...

i have a question! 0-0 since the Droid and the Devour have been discontinued before they've had a good year's run then would that mean if owners of either said device have to take their device in to get replaced and since they haven't had it for a year and Verizon probably won't have stock of any of the discontinued models does that mean that they'll maybe stick you with this thing?

Not a chance. Just because new sales are discontinued doesn't mean that replacements are gone too. Hell, folks are still getting their BLACK Voyagers and LG Dares replaced.

the LG Dare and the LG Voyager are both phones that are more than a year old and now when people have to get those replaced they have to pay the $50 replacement fee to get one from Asurion. the Devour has the shortest life span (other than the Kins) of any phone i've ever seen on Verizon and usually when you have a phone like the Devour that's less than a year old and you take it to the store with a problem they'll try to replace it there on the spot. i've even heard of cases now of people taking their Devours in and getting Droids in exchange for their defective Devour coz the stores don't have em anymore so it just makes me wonder how they'll do it when they run out of stock for both models.

Simply put we still receive stock for replacements for nearly every device we ever sold. Chance of people being "stuck" are near slim to none. If if thats the case we would call in and order a compareble model to that phone if anyone needs it. Thats just standard policy.

well it seemed to me that those replacement devices that come from Asurion you have to pay $50 for when that year of free replacement runs out. which is why i asked this question about the Droid 2.
