Take this as RUMORS, ElECITE released some illustration images and a short animated clip of what they claim to be a close image of the Storm 3 they got to test. With the attention around the Bold 9800, the flip 9670 and the upcoming BlackBerry 6 most have forgotten about the Storm series. The Storm line has been a conflicted line for RIM since most people either hate it or love it, and most tend to fall within the negative side.
According to ELECITE the new storm is impressive with the following features:
- 16GB internal memory Via propriety SSD/Flash hybrid technology
- 10+ Hours of Talk Time
- 300 PPI Screen resolution
- A Crystal-Clear Glass screen
- Designed for comfort
- A better visual OS looks better than what we seen from OS 6.0
- multi-press enhancement
- 802.11n Wifi, Bluetooth 3.0
- Support for 60GHz WI-FI spectrum

This is really HARD to believe specially after what we have seen from RIM so far, but I am really hopping the rumors are true and that RIM releases this device for GSM carriers in the U.S. Maybe T-Mobile and AT&T will finally get a Storm device. If the rumos are not true, RIM should really consider this idea. I know the Storm has not been a great success but here is me hopping RIM finally releases a nice touch screen device not only through Verizon but other carriers as well.
