Its a funny thing....I read all these blogs & forums which emphasize how dissatisfied so many users are with the "limited 256Mb" and inability for the device to handle the 6.0 OS, and how everyone was screwed out of their value.

I have a different take on the matter. The Storm2 was designed for the 5.0 OS. If one were to manage all parameters within that arena, there is nothing really to complain about. It works pretty good, and depending on how creative you are, the unit can be pristine.. Sure a couple of updates produced this & that. However, the bottom line... for its design it was a major improvement over the original, which, with 4.7, was a supreme example of crapware at the lowest level. So, we went out and purchased the better device. Of course Storm2 was not made for 6.0., period. An update refresh will expand its performance somewhat, but thats it. No further expectations. You can't put a square peg into a round hole. I utilize my Storm well within its operating threshold and have more than a mountain of apps and productivity utilities loaded into it.

Those same folks bitching about "no 6.0. will be the same people doing the same thing, when the next version is released and obsoleted by 1 Gb, a 10 Mp Camera, a slider perhaps, and OS 7.0. Be happy with what you've got. All this stuff will be an evolution from the past when LTE/4G hits the scene anyway...
