BB Storm2 dated for Telus
The sequel to the BlackBerry Storm smartphone, the 9550, is expected to be released at provider Telus on September 15th, according to an unofficial report on the Internet. Telus is also teasing in TV commercials and in movie theater previews with a September 15th date, but does not reveal what is due on that date. Verizon is rumored to get the new BlackBerry handset sometime in October.
While specs haven't officially been revealed, the handset is expected to carry over the same dual-mode CDMA and GSM world roaming support as the original Storm as well as adding Wi-Fi capabilities. There should be a 3.2-megapixel camera, and the latest BlackBerry OS 5.0 operating system installed. [via BlackBerryOS]
