    If this has been pointed out I apologize...

    But it seems WAY too coincidental that 5.7.0.151 is the same as the current build just with a 5 and not a 4.
    Doesn't matter. The Platform is much higher than .151. It is same Platform version that device software 5.0 uses. Just saying that it is coincidental.

    So it's no super TS *hopes fubar* But no biggie. It feel to early for super TS (if there is one down the pipeline) info to leak.

    Anyway, what about the nomenclature now? Is the Storm 2 classified as the 99xx series? Like duh! If so, then "90" will be GSM, CDMA and WiFi.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    I believe that it's the real deal, and 5.7 have many moderate (or few major) changes/advancements.

    OK, you get a GIMP medal. Now, can we follow the info from people in the know who already CONFIRMED this exists inside RIM systems, or will you stand in line for another medal? Please hold...

    I can't imagine this being real. Seems like a huge jump in model numbers to go to a 99xx and up to a xx90 at that.

    i wonder if this is legit, and is actually a branding for the Storm 2, why does it show an os of 5.7? and still no wifi? and what does the ending of 90 indicate?

    Could be fake, could be true. In the end does it really matter?

    Maybe this 5.7 is the OS that was made by the dude we stole from Apple. That would be cool and might, just might make me look at touchscreen Blackberrys in a better light.

    Could it have something to do with verizon's soon to come "lte" network. I read that they would be converting from cdma to lte.

    That's like a 6 year olds attempt at photoshop. It's that bad.

    It's not that bad actually. I don't know...can you point out where it's so horrible if it IS a 'shop job?

    RIM can program whatever the crap they want to into the About screen. It doesn't have to be photoshopped to be fake.

    The cloned numbers look cloned in that GIMP edit. (EDIT: I TAKE THIS BACK. I GUESS I WAS SEEING THE WEIRD WAVY EFFECT FROM THE PICTURE YOU SNAPPED)Flaws in one '9' show up in the last '9', for example. I know it was a rush job, but still... Take a look at the high res image that was posted to start this thread and it looks more like a real screen shot. I don't think we are looking at a new device, just an existing device running new software or that has a modified About screen.

    It is funny how people are attacking the pics, RIM has a number of stuff being developed by their R&D people and I am sure they are not exactly sticker to numbering their projects.

    So although, it has been said that the VZW version will have wifi, according to your screenshots, the version with CDMA doesn't have wifi, although the GSM version does? Interesting, and not a good sign.
