While RIM are focused on their upcoming launch of the BlackBerry Playbook Tablet, it is no secret that the BlackBerry Storm 3 smartphone remains the device that BlackBerry fans are hoping to see announced this year.
According to this recent article by BGR, it looks like an announcement may not be too far off, as they have gone on record to say that the BlackBerry Storm 3 will be released sometime in September, and will come in a choice of two or three versions depending on which region you live in.

Aside from the release details, we also have a list of specs for the Storm 3, which BGR aren’t labelling as a rumor, as they have seen the device already and have a collection of pictures which you can view over at their website.
Key specs include a 3.7-inch 800 x 480 capacitive display (highest BlackBerry resolution yet), a 5MP camera with 720 HD video recording, a 1.2Ghz processor, 512MB of RAM, MicroSD support, optical trackpad, 3G Mobile Hotspot, a 1230 mAh battery and much more.
The BlackBerry Storm 3 will also run on version 6.1 of the BlackBerry OS and the device may not feature Storm branding on it. We’re not going to post the images of the device here, but you can check them out over at BGR – let us know your thoughts on the design choice.
Are you waiting for this device to release, or have you switched your interest to another device which is on the way? No indication on what carriers the Storm 3 will arrive on, but Verizon is obviously a favorite which has been mentioned numerous times.
