RIM developing 5.0 OS for original BlackBerry Storm?
Many owners of the original BlackBerry Storm have wondered if Verizon's last OS upgrade to was the end of upgrades for the initial version of the Storm 9530. After all, with the Storm 2 expected by the end of the year, as we have reported, and launched perhaps as soon as October, many figured that RIM would be focusing its attention on the newer model. However, it appears that BenezBlog has a few spyshots of OS build working on the current Storm.

In case you were wondering, Viigo, Poynt and BOLT are some of the applications that work on the higher OS build. A list can be read at the source link. The new build was generally panned by the blog as not being productive and the feeling was that the last released OS ( for the 9500) was faster and more reliable than the 5.0 build in the areas of the keyboard, browser, data and telephone. Of course, that doesn't mean that .92 will be the last OS starting with a 5. There probably is much more work that RIM will do on the software before it is ready for the public to use.
