New BlackBerry Storm Confirmed
As expected, Research in Motion this week confirmed the upcoming arrival of a second BlackBerry Storm smartphone. The touchscreen phone will be known as the Storm2 and was made official by the company's co-CEO, Jim Balsillie, in an interview with Reuters.
The new version of the phone will differ from the original in adding multitouch capabilities, as well as faster typing, Wi-Fi access and more.
No pricing or release date information have yet been announced, although the device will presumably arrive prior to the holiday season. The original BlackBerry Storm appeared around Thanksgiving last year.
