A video of the Blackberry Storm 2 (9550) codenamed Blackberry Odin has been leaked. The phone in the video is an early prototype. The prototype doesn’t have Wi-Fi but the final version of the phone will definitely have Wi-Fi. Physically the Storm 2 is almost identical to the Storm but it has some physical changes which make it better and easier to use. The Storm 2 feels nicer in hand.
The prototype is also running the same firmware as the Storm but it is said to have a newer and improved firmware.
The Blackberry Storm just arrived in our test labs today. The BB 9500 a.ka. Storm is the first ever full touchscreen Blackberry device.
No QWERTY keyboard like the other blackberries but it’s got SurePress technology so that you can use the screen alone. The display is gorgeous and we are drooling at it already.
