Verizon Canceling the Storm 9570; Giving Tour 9630, Bold 9650, and Curve 3G Updates?

Verizon Canceling the Storm 9570; Giving Tour 9630, Bold 9650, and Curve 3G Updates?

It was just the other week we learned that the rumored Storm2 ‘refresh’ was going to be the Storm 9570. The 9570 was going to be a beefed up Storm2 that will sport 512mb RAM, 5MP camera, OS6, and likely an upgraded processor. Now, there are reports from a leaked Verizon roadmap that show Verizon may have scrapped the ‘refresh’ deal all together.

Verizon has really been pushing devices on Android. We’re venturing to guess that Verizon understands a Storm2 ‘refresh’ probably wouldn’t see strong sales. This must have been a last minute decision, since the Storm 9570 we saw was already Verizon branded.

Nevertheless, other carriers may still pick up the 9570. It wouldn’t surprise us if we saw the Storm 9570 hit Sprint. It will also be interesting to see if there will be a GSM version, perhaps it will be the 9560?

Verizon also plans to give updates to the Tour 9630, Bold 9650, and Curve 3G 9330 in October. Apparently, for “known issues”, whatever they may be.

Were there any Verizon customers out there looking forward to the Storm 9570? Could you hold out until 2011 for a possible 4G LTE Storm device?

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
