According to several leaks that have recently surfaced on the internet, RIM have been working on a new BlackBerry Storm device, and up until recently it was unclear as to what the device would feature. Finally, we've been told that the next device in the Storm line-up will be the 9570, which is more or less a refreshed version of the Storm 2. Physically, the device is practically identical to it's predecessor, with the biggest change coming in the additional RAM, which is now up to 512MB. Based on the information found so far, it seems like this device is nothing more than refreshed version of the Storm 2, equipped to handle BlackBerry 6.
It's strange to see RIM release refreshed versions of existing models, especially considering their push to change the public's view of BlackBerry devices. The Torch is a great step forward for the Canadian-based company, but one can't help but wonder if the rest of these "interim" devices are actually intended for long-term use, or if they are merely intended to keep users busy until a new (maybe QNX developed) OS is prepared to take over after a short BlackBerry 6 life-span. Don't get me wrong, the Torch and BlackBerry 6 are a great improvement, but there's certainly still room to grow.
While it's been confirmed this handset will hit Verizon Wireless in the U.S., nothing has come to light regarding the device in Canada as of yet, but we'll be sure to keep you updated!
