The news is appearing to get worse for Blackberry Storm owners and enthusiasts. It appears that the Blackberry Storm 9570, which has been dubbed the Storm 2 refreshed and/or Storm 3, will not just be canceled for Verizon Wireless, but all carriers. Below you will find what a source of BBLeaks.com close to the matter was told regarding the device:
“Thank you for your hard work and diligence in preparing your application to support the upcoming hardware refresh of the BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone (model number 9570, codename R027). Regrettably, RIM has decided not to pursue this device further and has ended the program.
However, rest assured that you will have the opportunity to leverage the work you’ve put in thus far in preparing for the new OS, as BlackBerry 6 will be making its way to more Verizon products in the near future, including the BlackBerry Bold 9650 and the BlackBerry Curve 9330″
Whether or not this is true is only speculative at this point. However, if it is, this should be seen as a major disappointment for Research In Motion. The Storm was supposed to be the game changing device for RIM. So how do you feel about this? Should the Storm series die off? Hit up our comments and let us know!
