Just a day after they begin to circulate rumors of a possible BlackBerry Storm 2 with WiFi (most likely that this is not the name but we call it so), and came to speak of Research In Motion to confirm the version.

He did the voice of RIM, Alain Segond von Banchet, who also took the opportunity to advance the device will be available later this year or early 2010 with a new text input method. "

In saying this, we imagine that the Storm 2 will have touch screen and sliding QWERTY keyboard, a much safer bet to not scare off your user base is accustomed to physical keyboards. Let us not forget that many complained of the virtual QWERTY keyboard on the Storm ... and this format touchscreen + QWERTY no doubt that it will have more acceptance than a full touchscreen.

Another development that left out the spokesman of the company is to take a break and not launch new models in 2009: "Here a lot of models last year as the Bold, the new Curve, Pearl Flip and Storm. We are now going to retreat a little, but we have plans for next year. "
