Slide shows Odin refresh specs for BlackBerry Storm 3
A picture of a slide presentation shows some of the new specs for the BlackBerry Storm's Odin refresh aka the Storm 3. The two most important  changes will be the OS refresh to the BlackBerry 6. More finger-friendly than previous 'Berry OS builds, the new OS combined with the inclusion of the new WebKit browser closes the gap between BlackBerry and iOS and Android. As the Old Spice guy might say, with these two changes alone, the Storm 3 could be the phone that you wish your phone could be. There's more. The phone has memory of 512MB with support for 32GB via MicroSD card. The camera is a 5MP model with a new UI and there is support for Wi-Fi 802.11n and the phone can be used as a 3G mobile hot spot, coming soon.

If you use an electron microscope and a magnifying glass with 100x optical zoom, you might be able to make out the bottom of the slide which reads, "___ember" which means that we could see the BlackBerry Storm 3 launch as soon as September or as late as December. RIM has been staying under the radar while Apple and Android do their thing. With the luxurious looking Touchscreen/Slider 9800 and the refreshed Storm 3, it sure seems as though RIM is going to have some very exciting models to introduce as we get closer to the holiday season. And unlike past launches for RIM, this time it seems that the changes they made came from your input.

By flagship phone, do you mean verizons flagship phone or blackberry's flagship phone? Because there is no way that this is Verizon's flagship phone anymore.

Of not not verizons, i mean blackberrys. It seems like since the first storm, they have out the latest os version on it. Im not saying it needs to go against the iphone or android in general, but a larger screen would be nice.

SurePress is a GREAT feature! The only bad thing about surepress was on the Storm 1.

I agree completely with you. At least make it 3.5 inches to match the iphone, 3.2 inches is too small for a flagship smartphone.

why would blackberry try to MATCH the iphone? blacberry users, are not the same as iphone and android users, I would love to own a droid, the iphone never really interested me, nothing against apple just not into it, but I really LOVE my blackberry and am finding it hard to make a change, and the screen size on m,y phone is NOT a deal breaker for me, with the storm 3 coming out im finding it very difficult to find a reason to switch.

Screen still 3.2? I mean even the iphone is 3.5, so step it up already. when android has massive screens and mid ranged screens, its time to move up on your" flag ship" device.
