The above slide shows what is rumored to be a training slide for the upcoming BlackBerry Storm 3, which according to the specs looks like a somewhat minor update to the Storm2. We have been hearing a lot of rumors about the Storm 3, such as the fact that it will come with a new OS possibly developed in partnership with the recent QNX acquisition. If you’re going to believe these rumors, the device described here is more of a Storm2 refresh with BlackBerry 6. This makes sense as RIM will probably refresh all OS 5 devices to run OS 6 before they start rolling out what could be considered OS 7.
The slide shows this Storm 3 having:
- BlackBerry 6
- WebKit Browser
- 512MB Of RAM
- 5MP Camera With new UI
- World Edition
- 802.11n WiFi
- 3G Mobile Hotspot (Coming Soon)
The 3G Mobile Hotspot feature is cool and we can expect this refresh to happen some time around the holidays. RIM is pretty clockwork about their device releases so you can assume that the “Storm 3″ will launch around the same time that the Storm 2 launched last year.
