New photos of the BlackBerry 9570 Storm 3 appear, name not certain - read the full textNew photos of the alleged Storm 3 have appeared confirming the suspicions that it's a minor spec bump of the Storm 2. It's not clear if the BlackBerry 9570 will be called Storm 3 or something else, but more RAM, BlackBerry OS 6 and a new camera aside, there's little else that's new. Here's a...

I believe this is a hoax... simply get pictures of the OS6 and make minor changes like model change to 9570... upload them to a storm 2, view full-screen and presto! Looks like a storm 2 with OS6. I believe the first leak with the optical track-pad.

If you look closely you can tell this is a storm 2 with the OS6 loaded on it or partially loaded on it. I would find it hard to believe that there is no update to the external housing with a 'refresh'. There are always some updates to the housing...everything pictured is identical to the Storm 2. Even when the updated from the Storm 1 to the Storm 2 the batter door was changed along with the screen. What does everyone else think?

In a strong 3g area i havn't any issues making calls when facing the cell tower

*Posted from my iphone4 held properly to prove talk of signal loss is all lies when using a case to stop scratches.

I am really getting fed up with RIM. It seems like they can produce nothing new. I love my 9700 but if RIM does not come with anything really great I am surely switching back to Nokia. Have they really looked at the competition from other brands lately? Stop dishing out the same old phones, RIM, you are starting to stink really bad.

Ok so Im one of the few that has had a storm and a storm 2 and loved them(yes thats right I thought they were great)but I was lucky I got ones that worked. WTF is RIM thinking repackaging the storm 2????? the damage was done with the original release. Simple answer new release new storm but no they insist on flogging a dead horse. If they dont sort it out and soon Im shifting to WM7.

in all seriousness is there really a market location for the storm? working in a phone shop myself all i hear from customers is negative feedback about the previous models
