    Check this out - I went to the VZW Smith Micro website - BlackBerry® Software Updates - and I went to see what berry's they listed on the drop down menu. I came across something called "BlackBerry Curve 2 8350" - I think they meant the 8530, but either way, it is called the Curve 2 here...interesting! How long before we see this on the advertisements?

    I loved it in the store. I bought it on the site though (no mail in rebates), Fedex doesn't deliver on weekends. so their free overnight shipping means Monday, and i work.

    You can call the new Storm either Storm 2 or 9550. They all have different versions too depending in who offers them: 8310, 8320, 8350 or 9500, 9530, 9520, 9550. I think you can call it whatever you want, it all means the same.

    Being that verizon didn't get the 8900 curve, this is the next gen curve for them, the 8530 curve 2.
