BlackBerry Storm 2 spied, has its father's eyes

Ah, the time-honored tradition of spy shots brings us joy once again. This time it's the BlackBerry Storm 2. So what does junior has in store you ask? Well, slight cosmetic changes on the outside and rumored upgrades on the inside.

The Storm 2 seems to have traded up from plain, old clickable buttons to touch sensitive ones. If this is true, it'd be quite ironic considering the original Storm was the first phone with a clickable touchscreen. The sides of the phone have been prettified as well, while the back seems mostly unchanged.

As far as rumored upgrades of the internals go, the BlackBerry Storm 2 should have Wi-Fi and improved performance as the UI reportedly runs much smoother than the one on the current model. The camera is unchanged at 3.15 megapixels with autofocus.

There's also hearsay about a new approach to text entry and since this is an area quite important to all BlackBerries we hope it's true. Either way, RIM seem determined to get to the casual users, not just executives on the go.

Here are the rest of the photos:

I really do wonder about those who are charged with marketing at RIM. They clearly know little and do a poor job. With that iphone thing taking all the news, RIM need to keep the profile up on the Storm 2 to prevent purchasers migrating to Apple. Thi...

I agree Liz, but judging from the pre-release pictures 3.2 is all we will be thrown. Rim simply don't care about customer opinion.
