What better way to test the reception of a new device than to take it to a busy university? After spending the last few weeks playing with the new BlackBerry Storm 2 (and probably longer than that, who knows), Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam took the phone on a trip to New York University and showed it to several individuals, and the response seemed to be positive - most remarking that "this is what they hoped the original Storm should be." Of course, I doubt McAdam would go on record with negative comments if there were any, but nonetheless, more good news from the Storm 2 camp.
After the frustrations with the original model, expectations are high for the Storm 2. Actual launch dates are still unconfirmed, but if rumors are correct, you could be toting the new device by the end of the month. It can't be too much longer now!
