Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam confirms BlackBerry Storm 2

Comments

Lowell McAdam

In an recent webcast, Lowell McAdam, CEO of Verizon Wireless, said that “over the next six months or so you will see devices like Palm Pre and a second generation Storm,”

Although this is great news for Verizon, Sprint was not happy about the comments. Shares in Sprint Nextel Corp fell 2 percent after the comments from Lowell McAdam, as the highly anticipated Pre is seen as key to helping No. 3-ranked Sprint stem subscriber losses.

Engadget got their hands on the new BlackBerry Storm 2 codenamed the BlackBerry Odin. The device that they did the hands-on with had the OS locked down so they couldn’t give us a real insight into the software side of the device, or much about the new touchscreen features.

The big news that has been confirmed, is that RIM has abandoned the original Storm’s SurePress click-screen and gone with a traditional fixed capacitive display for the sequel. The new screen is rumored to include haptic feedback as well, but the locked device couldn’t be tested.

BlackBerry Storm 2 aka BlackBerry Odin details roundup

12 Comments

Leaked pictures of the BlackBerry Storm 2, aka the BlackBerry Odin, have surfaced on CB, and have since been taken down. The device is looking really nice. With the flurry of complaints surrounding the released BlackBerry Storm, many users are worried the BlackBerry Storm 2 will be the phone they wished they’d originally purchased. This is very much going to be the case.

This leak is both bad and good news for RIM. The leak confirms a new BlackBerry Storm is on way, which will help generate a buzz until launch date, but it will also have a negative impact on the already launched BlackBerry Storm sales.

The upcoming BlackBerry Odin is rumored to feature GPS, WiFi and work on a GSM network. Rumors have claimed that the device offers a “new approach to text entry,” but from the pictures we aren’t seeing anything revolutionary.

(Rumor) Details about the upcoming BlackBerry Storm 2

blackberry touch patent

Simon put up a great post about the soon-to-be-official BlackBerry Storm 2. A RIM sales manager from the Netherlands has acknowledged the second coming of the BlackBerry Storm at the TeleVisie 2009 conference. He says it will come in late 2009 or early 2010 and hints at SureType keyboard improvement and WiFi inclusion - both of which were previously rumored.

Some analysts are guessing the new Storm will use both a touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad a la HTC Touch Pro.

Do you think the BlackBerry Storm would be significantly improved with a QWERTY keypad?
