BlackBerry Storm 3 MIA: RIM keeps us waiting

RIM held their press event yesterday and we had assumed three things, a new 9800 slider device, more details on BlackBerry OS 6 and a new Storm 3 smartphone. Research In Motion came through on two of those but it seems that the BlackBerry Storm 3 was MIA.

There could be a number of reasons why this is; the first and most worrying is that the Storm 3 could be no more. Why would RIM want to launch a new version when previous versions have not done that well? Also with the release of the Torch 9800 slider, they have killed two birds with one stone.

We all know how much corporate users love to feel buttons while sending emails, and we know that consumers love a touchscreen — the Torch offers the best of both worlds. This has worked well for the Motorola Droid and will no doubt do well for the upcoming Samsung Epic 4G.

There are those out there who will hold on to the hope that RIM will release the Storm 3, but I would not hold my breath for long. Do you think that Research In Motion has abandoned the idea of the Storm 3?
