The day is getting closer and closer, as Research In Motion has officially placed the upcoming BlackBerry Storm 2 on its website. Complete with video, we get the first true (and official) look at the replacement to the original Storm.
As I've said before, the BlackBerry Storm 2 has a branding scar that it has to get rid of. Shortly after the launch of the original device, users complained about everything from battery life to software crashes (despite the phone selling quite well). Their criticism was certainly justified, and though it took RIM some time to respond, the latest software builds have finally placed the original Storm at where it should have been at launch last November.
That being said, RIM needs a smooth and successful launch to counter the challenges from the original Storm. With the early reviews being largely positive, it looks like RIM may have a winner on its hands.
