    If the rumors about the Storm 2 being released at the end of this year are true, I wouldn't be surprised if it's released with WiFi capability.

    Storm 2 will be the first BB on VZW with wi-fi. This has already been confirmed as well as all BB's after will be loaded with wi-fi

    IThere is no release date yet. Only thing released was that we should see it drop in Q4 '09. I would assume that the earliest would be Black Friday to keep it at a year between original and S2

    Edit: All we can do is just sit back and wait!

    Jgutie6634 thanks for all your help I appreciate it. Just one more question for you. Do you think Verizon will ever release a blackberry with the screen size of the storm but with a physical keyboard? If yes, how soon do you think? Thanks again.

    No worries Mike, anytime. To be completely honest I really dont know nor does anyone else outside of RIM. The "Driftwood" is rumored to be the touch/keyboard hybrid device but dont think it will have the same size screen as storm or larger; unless they make the keyboard a slide out.

    Lol, that's my problem. I have an LG Versa now and I love having the big screen and all, but not a big fan of the virtual keyboard. I like the Tour somewhat just I don't like the fact that it has such a small screen and I'm not crazy about the trackball either. If I'm going to get a blackberry and pay for the browsing capability I would like to take full advantage of that with a nice screen size. I see you have a Storm so what do you suggest?

    Personally I love my Storm. I waited till April to pick one up but kept tabs on it here in the forums since it was announced. I came from a Curve so the learning Curve(no pun intended) was very slight. I love the clickable screen, but it does take some getting used to. Do you have an available upgrade right now? I would recommend you going into a store and playing with both for awhile side by side and see what feels better. If you are thinking about a Storm I would say look for one on Craigslist or ebay and save your upgrade till S2 is released if you like the Storm.

    So the Storm isn't as bad as everyone says? I played with both of them already. I like the physical keyboard of the Tour, but on the other hand I like the screen size of the Storm.

    OH GOD NO!!! The majority of people who B!%@$ about the Storm never give/gave it a honest and fair chance. I picked up a Storm in April of Craigslist (Mexico made) and I have not had a single problem. The majority of the problems is USER ERROR and/or extreme pickiness! With .151 OS the Storm has its best memory management, fast, stables, etc.

    So you think the Storm 2 will be much better than the first one?

    Well from what we have seen so far I think it will be a very nice improvement all around. Just cant wait to see how the OS looks on a production model. Only time will tell and hopefully we start seeing some more details soon.
