    Figured i would post this here to reach more devs.....
    With the new Storm 2 right around the corner, how do us plain old Storm owners know that the apps we purchase today are going to work on the Storm 2? I for one am going to be a little hesitant to plunk down any more cash on apps that i might not be able to use in a few months. Can we be assured of compatability?

    I don't think anybody would know yet until we see the OS the storm 2 runs and how it differs from the originals software.

    The Storm 2 appears to be no different than the current Storm. Sure, it looks a bit different and may have a newer OS or something but it'd be like comparing two like-blackberries. Most of the software for non-touch blackberry devices works on other non-touch blackberry devices... At least if the screen is the same size. That's just what I think at least.

    The thing that worries me is the accessories. Does it use the same charging cradle,leather case,battery, ect.

    Applications are forward compatible. For example, an application compiled against OS version 4.6 is compatible with version 4.6 or newer. I highly doubt RIM will change this.

    It looks to be a bit thinner, so leather case shouldnt be a problem, as well as the charging cradle, now the battery could possibly be a different one. But if it doesnt supply more than that shouldnt be an issue either.

    I *really* doubt the Storm 2 will be that different from the original when it comes to developing. RIM's API does a very good job of encapsulating all the hardware interfaces. Did you know that handling a bluetooth puck GPS is no different to program for than a built in GPS? I think that's pretty cool. RIM knows how to make things easy for devs.
