The first image of what is likely to be the refresh of the BlackBerry Storm 2 and Storm series. Apparently, it isn’t the Storm 3, but something closer to the Bold 9780. The device is said to have a 3.7 inch display, 8GB of internal memory and WiFi hotspot connectivity. The internal memory is pretty huge and it’s a pretty significant jump from previous devices. Expect to see this around the holidays.

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 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.
