Rumor: Verizon LTE BlackBerry Storm 3 to Feature Unique OS

12 Comments

The BlackBerry Storm 3 specs are very much a rumor right now but there are a few interesting talking points worth mentioning. The major rumors here are that the Storm 3 will feature upwards of 1GB of flash memory, a 1GHz processor, a new OS (not OS 6 but rather an OS on its own) and it could be one of the first LTE devices on Verizon’s upgraded network.

Other rumors about the Storm 3 include:

  • Tested in a very private beta to prevent leaks.
  • Currently disguised as a Storm2 in case an engineer gets drunk and leaves it at a bar.
  • 8GB internal memory.
  • Lots of personalization and the ability to run widgets.
  • The screen will be something we haven’t seen yet. It could be a Synaptics touchscreen that would make for a much “lighter” touch experience.

So far it sounds like the new Storm is going to be something very different than its predecessors. Hopefully this new OS is something that will mean more apps, usability and overall a better end user experience.

Wall-E Premium Theme with Animated Dock and Customizable Icons

Comment

The Wall-E theme by Hedone is a premium theme that has plenty of wallpaper space and 6 customizable icons. The icons are hidden in an animated dock, and the homescreen gives you quick access to the options, connections manager and profiles. Just like many Hedone themes, Wall-E comes with a quick keys that let you access apps quickly from the keyboard. The only strange thing about this theme is why they chose to call it “Wall-E”, as it has absolutely no reference to the Pixar movie anywhere.
