BlackBerry Storm 9550 Hits Verizon Inventory

Get excited but not too excited just yet. Over the weekend BGR posted word that it was looking like the upcoming Storm 2 would be going by the 9550 device model number. The photo above further adds to the validity of this notion as it seems the dummy unit for the Blackberry Storm "2" (you know, the fake display model units they keep in store for show and tell) has shown up in Verizon's inventory system. 

Could this mean the next generation of BlackBerry Storm will be here soon? Maybe. Having the device model number and name show up in this manner is definitely a good sign that things are in motion - though with the Storm 2 still likely to be a few months away it's probably not too late for things like the device model # to change.
