New York Times: BlackBerry Storm 2 Coming "This Week"

Tucked in a story about RIM trying to keep up in this crazy world of iPhones and Androids is a brief mention that "this week, Verizon and R.I.M. are trying again with a Storm do-over, the Storm 2". They also mention its redesigned screen, that it actually "gives the user the sensation of pushing a physical button when pressing a number on the glass touch screen".

We'd heard from a Best Buy and Verizon leak it was coming soon, so no surprise, really.

What I find interesting is how much BlackBerry brass emphasises that they save carriers money and let them make a bigger profit. If you wanna win the consumer war, that's totally not the point, guys. [NYT]
