According to a “reliable informant”, Verizon was working on some BlackBerry 6 builds for the 9550 Storm 2, but currently have ceased. It is being said that it was possible that Verizon ran into problems making the OS compatible with the device.
There are rumors that BlackBerry 6 requires at least 512MB of RAM, and the 9550 only has 256MB.
If true, this is sad for current Storm 2 users. Verizon to not make OS 6 for it at all seems wrong. Perhaps, Verizon will be up to their usual antics and release the OS late.
