BlackBerry Storm 2 to come in September 2009 with Wi-Fi

Launched by Verizon Wireless in November 2008, BlackBerry Storm is surely an unusual smartphone – after all, it’s RIM’s first touchscreen device.

However, the device lacks a feature that no modern smartphone should lack: Wi-Fi.

Well, it looks like the next-generation Storm will come with Wi-Fi.

According to SlashGear, “a source very close to the issue” confirmed that Verizon plans to release a BlackBerry Storm 2 in September this year.

Apart from adding Wi-Fi, RIM will also bless the Storm 2 with even more features for the pro consumers, but the source didn’t say what exactly these features are.


All in all, let’s hope these are not just rumors and RIM is indeed preparing a Wi-Fi capable BlackBerry Storm.

    Will the addition of WiFi allow the Verizon subscriber to opt out of the presently mandatory data plan? Knowing VZWs' consumer-unfriendly attitude, I'd not bet on it. I have a problem paying 2x-3x the cost of a (99.999% reliable) landline for wireless service fraught with dropouts and dropped calls.

    What then would be the advantage of having WiFi?

    I continue to stay with VZW sans contract using the trusty Moto E815 (the best phone they ever sold due to the disastrous, inflexible corporate U.I. ALL later handsets were saddled with) and have only flirted with re-upping to a 2-year contract since the Storm came out. Wasn't blown away by it as I WAS by the iPhone. It is still the most elegent, intuitive piece of H/H tech I've ever seen which has nearly gotten me to defect to ATT.

    Sticking with VZW (so far) in hopes of them FINALLY coming up with a TRUE iPhone killer!
