In a recent article published by the New York Times, they interview Lowell C. McAdam, the CEO of Verizon, on the next Blackberry Storm. McAdam had traveled to the Verizon store in NYC. He happened to be carrying around the Storm2 for a few weeks and brought it with him on the trip. While at the Verizon store he stopped a few college kids to show them the Storm2.

“I let them play with the second-generation Storm device,” he said.
“They came back and said ‘Oh, my gosh.’ They were very excited. This is
what they hoped the original Storm should be.”

Something else that is very interesting of the New York Times article is that in it they say, “This week, Verizon and R.I.M. are trying again with a Storm do-over, the Storm 2.” Does the New York Times
know something no one else does? They use the words ‘this week’, could
this mean the Storm2 will be officially announced this week or released
this week? Oh, the frustration of not knowing! We’ll see soon enough.
