RIM BlackBerry Storm2 officially available from Verizon on October 28
Finally, Verizon has officially announced that the BlackBerry Storm2 – RIM’s second touchscreen handset, is going to be available for customers on October 28, just as one previous piece of information said. The price is set at $179.99 with a two-year service agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The new Storm2 will feature a 3.25-inch touch display with a resolution of 360x480 pixels and a new SurePress clickable technology. The same will be utilized by the touch-sensitive keys at the bottom of the screen, which will serve for Send, End, Menu and Escape functions. Connecting to the internet should be a breeze with the Storm2, as it will pack EV-DO Rev. A, UMTS (2100MHz), as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. Other hardware goodies will include a microSD slot for up to 16GB of additional storage space, 3.2MP camera with autofocus, 3.5mm jack, GPS and Bluetooth.

When it comes to software, users will experience the new BlackBerry OS 5.0 that will bring some slight graphic updates, browser improvements and new email features like the ability to set follow-up flags, manage folders, view calendar attachments and so on. In addition, current BlackBerry Storm users can now download the new version of the operating system.

I hear ya. I just got a Tour a couple weeks ago to hold me over until the Droid. That HTC Dragon/Predator or whatnot with the 1ghz and 4.3" screen might be worth the wait as well , assuming its 4q2009.

played with it today! this is what they should have made the first storm. the new screen took a little getting used to but this is a grade A device. those of you that have used the new 5.0 software you know what I mean.
