What is on the horizon for the Storm users? Is there something new coming within the next 6 months or so? I need a reason not to jump ship and get the Droid Incredible. The specs on that phone are really incredible. I am not bashing at all because I love my BlackBerry but it doesn't stand up to other smartphones on the market in terms of speed, etc... I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong place. Any information or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I think so. Well that is I think theres gonna be another update to Storm 9530 here in the next month.
If you dont have Viigo; I'd subscribe LOL After reading some BerryReview.com stuff (integrated within Viigo) I've seen a couple new OS updates.
First off tonight says theres a new 5.0 software update; what does it do? I dont know. When will it be? I'd say within the month; its "leaked" out right now.
Later down the road; RIM wants to implement OS 6.0; now bout the only thing that stood out was the "pinch to zoom" feature. Yes thats right; pinch to zoom thats already on the android 2.1 OS will eventually come to the Blackberry Storm.
Believe me; I'm extremely hungry for this Incredible as well, lol heck I even have a picture of the incredible as my desktop wallpaper. Sadly I just have to be patient, and hope that I can make it til November 2010 as my so called contract is up in which I will have a 50 dollar credit towards the purchase of a new phone (Verizon-USA). HTCs incredible is definitely among my top list to change off from Storm 9530; that or an HTC Imagio but anywho I did see that were getting some software enhancements soon. (I hope)
**PS: Just read that Blackberry OS 6 might be coming Third Quarter of 2010** (ie Novish)

I am not currently on Viigo but I will certainly check it out. Thank you very much. I have read quite a few of the other blogs that I frequent and have heard all the excitement about OS 6.0. It leads me to believe that it may be introduced on a new device (just my speculation) but there is no way to be sure. I am actually more interested in hardware than software. I do have faith in RIM's software updates because my Storm is a completely different animal than it was when I first got it as a result of software updates. Software however can only do as much as the hardware is capable of handling.
A simple side by side comparison in a Verizon Store of the Storm2 to the currently available Droid shows just how much slower the Storm is. I am eligible for my last $100 NE2 in June. I would be more than willing to wait a couple, even a few months if I knew there was something coming up that would even come close to the specs of the Incredible. Please, please, please RIM, send us a Storm3 packed with some extra lightning and thunder. Otherwise, my Storm chasing days may come to an end sooner than later.
Thank you very much for your input Itolman. I certainly appreciate it.
Anyone else have any insight or even speculation?

Has anyone here seen the video released by RIM yesterday of BlackBerry 6? What did you think?
In my opinion, I could have done with a little less of the dancing in the background. It does however give a small glimmer of hope (Very Small) that a new touchscreen device will be released with the new software much like they did with the release of the Storm2.
