Storm 2 Confirmed by RIM CEO

Do you find yourself wanting to love the touch-enabled Blackberry Storm but for some reason it lacks a certain something? Or do you find yourself not wanting to get the Storm because it’s a first-gen model?

If you fall in either category, you will be happy to learn that the long-rumored Blackberry Storm 2 is currently being engineered.

While we have been hearing rumors about this for quite some time now, we finally have official confirmation from the big man himself, Jim Balsillie. Speaking to Reuters, he said “we have next-generation devices with [touch] and the whole roadmap.”

Apparently with one million devices sold, Blackberry has determined that there is a large consumer market to be had. Large market, indeed. Especially if the Storm 2 comes with some significant improvements or feature additions.

No release date was mentioned. Rumors have mentioned September 2009 as a possible date, but it all depends on how far through the process RIM is at this point.

    Surepress, Trupress??
    Have not taken the plunge for any press as yet. I notice that the NY Times tech guru rated ANY press as being too physically taxing for one's delicate hands. This model has been a winner in spite of such lower rating/s, Haptic feedback seems the best way to go, however.
    I still use my Pearl for input. I guess my fingers need the exercise… It does, however eliminate finger prints..
