An article posted by Reuters today says that Verizon announced during a webcast that they will carrying several new smartphones within the next six months. The list included the BlackBerry Storm 2, which is expceted to feature a new generation touch screen from RIM, as well the Palm Pre, several Android powered smartphones and the highly anticipated BlackBerry Tour 9630. So it looks like we might just see the next generation Storm in time for Christmas of this year!

“Over the next six months or so you will see devices like Palm Pre and a second generation Storm” on the Verizon Wireless network, McAdam said. “You can expect to see us launch a steady stream of new devices from multiple vendors.”

What do you think of this news? Does the idea of Storm 2 excite you? or Are you holding for something better?

    As a Storm owner it makes me want to head for iPhone or Palm Pre and sticking my Blackberry on eBay. Instead of first fixing what they’ve got in the Storm all they’ve focussed on is effectively obsoleting it within 6 months of launch by announcing its death to a successor. The iPhone’s been around 2 years? Do owners feel its obsolete? No, they’re about to get a juicy update to keep it at the top of the heap for another 2 years. Money well spent I think.

    Sounds exciting. After talking to a Sprint Rep that I know, he was telling me that Sprint will be getting their own version of the Storm… I’m debating between switching to At&t to get a Bold, or Verizon to get a Storm 2… I will wait it out to see what’s what.

    One thing that I do wish for is that mobile providers would give better discounts towards upgrades on phones.
