Today, Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam told the New York Times that he's been carrying the BlackBerry Storm 2 around for several weeks and has been showing it to college students at Verizon Wireless stores in New York City. Though McAdam doesn't say when the device will become available nor how much it will cost, the New York Times clearly says, "This week, Verizon and RIM are trying again with a Storm do-over, the Storm 2. Among its many improvements, the new phone gives the user the sensation of pushing a physical button when pressing a number on the glass touch screen." Neither McAdam nor the Times elaborates on what "this week" means, but it opens up the possibility that the companies will announce the device this week. No more details about the device were offered. Later in the piece, RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie hinted at a big change coming in November. The Times reports, "Mr. Balsillie said the company planned to shake up the market in November when it will open its private communication network, which will allow BlackBerry users to receive their e-mail and a constant flow of social network updates and entertainment content from other sources." Balsillie indicated that customers will "love" whatever this new social networking push is as much as they love their mobile email.
