Until now, the rumors surrounding the BlackBerry Storm 2 have varied depending on the outlet, but a leaked internal screenshot clearly shows October 21st as the official launch date. Dummy phones are beginning to arrive in Verizon Wireless retail stores, screen shots and accessories have been spotted at Best Buy, and demo units are beginning to pop up in the wild - all signs of an imminent release.
Expected to support OS 5.0 at launch, the Storm 2 will offer a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, and GSM support for wireless service while overseas. Most reviews point to a huge improvement over the original Storm; hopefully it will translate into more sales in the long-term. Who's planning to pick one up at launch, and if you're coming from another smartphone, why?
