New Verizon BlackBerry Storm 3: Android Temptation

Last month we heard some more rumor on the new Verizon BlackBerry Storm 3, which came via an apparent 2010 roadmap for Verizon. You can read more details on this here, and if all goes to plan we could see Storm 3 (aka 9570) release towards the end of October.

RIM’s Storm 3 has been missing in action for a while now, and while some users may have picked up the BlackBerry ‘Style’ 9670, others do not see this as an option. The latest technology in these devices is not enough for the true Storm fan.

Even the Torch is not enough, this device is not seen as a game changer, and the rumors about LTE abilities with Storm 3 on Verizon Wireless are enticing to say the least. Wireless Ground believes that BlackBerry OS 6 needs a 1Ghz processor to be really “snappy”, and some users will not settle for anything less.

It’s got to the point that those wanting a Storm 3 are checking blogs on a daily basis for “something” new, especially when it comes to specs. The common feeling is that the device is taking too long to come out. Long term BlackBerry users know what they want, 1GB RAM, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1GHz processor, 720p video recording, 5 megapixel camera, and a 3-inch hi-res screen are just some of the features wished for.

Some of our readers have said that they are really considering going to an android phone after the long wait. Has RIM taken too long to bring out the Storm 3? Are you ready to upgrade or have you moved to an Android device during the wait for Storm 3?
