Storm 2 at Verizon in Sept
According to a leaked planning agenda from Verizon Wireless, the carrier will get the BlackBerry 9550 smartphone -- otherwise expected to be called Storm 2 -- on September 29th, though only for corporate buyers. The document reveals the public will have access to the device on October 14th.
The 9550 is expected to replace the current 9530 Storm in the BlackBerry lineup, with an improved SurePress interface, added Wi-Fi capabilities and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The latest BlackBerry OS 5.0 should also be preloaded onto the device. Despite the dates, pricing for the Storm 2 is unknown.
Canadian provider Telus is expected to get the Storm 2 on September 15th. [via BlackBerryOS]
