New video of BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 shows off Wi-Fi
A new video of the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 in action has been discovered. The handset is running on OS 5.00.161 which is actually an older build as Crackberry says that later versions than .161 are now out. The biggest feature that this video shows off is the Wi-Fi capabilities of the device. When the video hits the 4:57 mark, we see the user disabling Wi-Fi on the handset.

At this point, having Wi-Fi on the Storm 2 really is not a surprise, but seeing it on video confirms it a lot better than just constantly reading about it. Expected launch date remains October or November for Verizon. Pricing is still anyone's guess.

I am a owner of the orignal storm and I do realize that this s not a finished device. But the internet is slower than the storm one was when it first came out, and the video was a waste of time. It didnt show me anything great. I am not at all impressed.
