The Globe and Mail has posted a really interesting article that talks about the new Pearl Flip as a game-changer… And then moved on to talk a bit about the new BlackBerry Thunder. But what really caught my attention in this article is that the Globe and Mail speculated that RIM will release the Thunder and a ‘second device which features both a touch-screen interface as well as a slide-out QWERTY keypad…known online as the Storm’. Really? That’s interesting is it not?
I suppose this would clear up the whole ‘Thunder’ and ‘Storm’ naming controversy. The BlackBerry Thunder would be the full touchscreen device… while the BlackBerry Storm would be a similar slider model. I don’t know, seems a little fishy to me, but we’ll see.
Check out the article here. The ‘Storm’ comments are in the last paragraph of the article.
