BlackBerry Storm 2 stars in a photoshoot, Wi-Fi confirmed

Today's forecast: cloudy with intermittent leaks of BlackBerry Storm 2 photos. This time it's the Vodafone Germany's version - the 9520. The good news is that it has Wi-Fi too, like it's Verizon-headed counterpart - the 9550 Storm 2 (and Euro 3G, of course).

It shares its looks with it too, which of course means it's a chip of the old block - the 9500 Storm. This one runs the 5.0 version of the BlackBerry OS, unlike the 9550 Storm 2 we saw in July, which had 5.1.

As you can see the Storm 2 still has a chubby exterior but at least the other gripe we had with the original - lack of Wi-Fi has been fixed. And the new screen has us holding our breaths - it isn't clicky when the phone is off, but is clicky when it's on. How does that work and is it better than the original?

According to rumors we'll have to wait till October this year to find out - then the Storm 2 should be out for both Vodafone and Verizon.
