Alain Segond von Banchet, Channel Sales Manager at RIM, talked on the record with Dutch tech site Tweakers.net about the rumored BlackBerry Storm 2. The device, which still hasn’t been officially named, will offer a new way to enter text and will launch towards the end of this year or the beginning of next. Although von Banhchet did come out say it, it is expected that the BlackBerry Storm 2 will have Wi-Fi as well.
Unlike the BlackBerry Storm, the BlackBerry Storm 2 will not be exclusive to Vodafone. It will be interesting to see if the CDMA version of the BlackBerry Storm 2 comes out on more than just Verizon here in the States.
