Verizon continues to botch BlackBerry Storm 2 launch

Today, Verizon posted an image of the BlackBerry Storm 2 on their site which allowed you to see the device in full 360. As of, 12PM EST, the image is no longer available. The file has likely been moved because it was discovered by the Internet.

The BlackBerry Storm 2 may be one of the most important devices for Verizon in terms of sales and revenue, and they are treating the launch with a total lack of organization. Rather than continue to post images, take them down when they’re found, show the device to students and pass the launch scoop to another carrier, perhaps they should just announce it already.

Poll: What do you like better: BlackBerry Storm 2 or Storm2?

All BlackBerry devices that are made go through a naming process that is, to say the least, confusing. The device name will often change as a BlackBerry goes from engineering to internal testing, then to carrier testing and finally through marketing and out to the consumer. Throughout the process, sites such as BlackBerry Cool are reporting as much as we know, and trying to keep you up to the minute.

With 2 names circling for the latest BlackBerry Storm, we’re wondering which one you like best. Do you like the sound of BlackBerry Storm 2 with a space, or BlackBerry Storm2, without the space?
