New Rumours Suggest Blackberry Storm 2 Will Forgo Clicky Touchscreen

Additional BlackBerry Storm 2 rumours out this morning would appear to all but confirm our earlier belief earlier that the soon-to-be-released smartphone is ditching the problematic click touchscreen, and will add some much-desired wi-fi goodness.

The rumours also indicate that the Storm 2 is officially the BlackBerry 9550, complete with this:

- CDMA 1xRTT/EVDO Rev. A - Quad-band GSM/EDGE - Single-band UMTS/HSDPA (2100MHz only) - Wi-Fi b,g - 3.2 megapixel camera - 360×480 resolution capacitive screen - OS 5.0

We had originally thought the Storm 2—er 9550—was going to arrive in June at Verizon, maybe, but that obviously didn't happen. Shall we try "sometime in July" on for size? [BGR]
