Apparently one of RIM’s Channel Sales Managers, Alain Segond von Banchet has gone on record with a Dutch news site called Tweakers saying the Storm 2 (not the final name) will “offer among other things a new manner to input text”. We presume he’s talking about Wi-Fi then? and scraping everyone’s favorite Surepress touchscreen? Interesting… I didn’t think that RIM would have an official comment on the “Storm 2″ but there you go. The employee also goes on to say that RIM may not go towards an exclusive deal with just Vodafone this time and open it up for all to get. He also points out that RIM may release the “Storm 2″ near the end of this year or early next.
What do you think the new Storm 2 should feature?
