BlackBerry Storm OS 5.0 Sneak Peek And Mini Review!

Well, we all know the Storm 2 is on it's way but for all you original Storm owners, RIM has not forgotten you exist. Development of the 5.0 OS for current Storm versions steams ahead just as it does for all other 5.0 upgradeable devices and today we get a look at the new OS. Albeit, not a huge look but hey, it's better then no look--which is what we have really had up until now.

BenezBlog, has posted up quite a few screenshots of 5.0.0.92 in action on the Storm and while the look is not really in depth, it does look rather polished. First impressions of the OS are also shared on the german blog so check it out and see what may be ahead for all you original Storm owners. Well, those of you who haven't decided to move onto the Tour that is.

why did rim add a ninja to the bootup screen?

Bla1ze

To indicate their super duper stealthy behaviour when releasing OS' of course!

Hehe! It's a watermark from the site. :)

Hand_O_Death

I thought it was a secret ninja of the RIM clan.

Assasinating all the fart apps scattered over the internet.

dangeross

its the logo of the german site if you click through the link.

they are the self proclaimed balckberry ninja.

blackmannx

the ninja is because its BLACKMANNX approved.. lol no thats from the site these photos came from..

brodys2

seems like it needs a fair bit of work... But i guess its its only one opinion...

any eta??

I hope it will have a customizable keyboard. I dont need 2 sym and caps buttons. Instead, I'd love to add a , ? and ' to the main board. Its kinda stupid to have to hit a button to be able to use common puncuation. Also, I would like to be able to customize the homescreen, fonts, bb messenger background and folders with colors. And it better have a today feature on the homescreen.

I agree. I also haven't figured out why there isn't a period/decimal point next the the numbers when you use the shift lock! C'mon RIM. These types of things seem like a no brainer to me!

Looks pretty similar to the current OS to be honest. The biggest noticeable change is the reboot screen no longer being white. I won't complain when it comes out though. I'm always up for improvements in operating systems.

Well, those of us who have not switched to a iPhone3GS is more like it. The Storm 2 will be a joke. RIM has some serious issues to resolve if it is going to be competitive past the next few years.

Hardyboy001

lags on the storm?...no way...lol

crysis63

lol this guy is funny

MajikUF

Sounds like that it's not worth upgrading even if it was available.

blessed2bamommie

I just got this phone and I fear its obsolete! I'm in here for a long time before an upgrade!

VMalska

Take a little bit more care when writing xD...you put "on it's way" instead of "on its way" =)

EDIT: Unnecessary comment due to the fact that the posters of the comments don't distinguish between "it's" and "its" either...

pipotobe

This is really not the Os I was hoping to see. Seems to me that Rim doesn't want to be flashy.

Neofire

I was actually looking forward to switching over to Verizon for the Storm 2, but if the nice solid hardware is gonna be dressed with with this lame looking OS. I will just stick with my 8900. And Im even growing tired of it! I may just get a little taste of Android and see what the MyTouch 3g is working with once its released. Hate to say it but software wise blackberries are not visually pleasing, but then again they are not supposed to be.

captain_dl#AC

Please listen to the Crackberry Nation. The Storm 5.0 OS needs to be flashier. We're not asking for an iPhone, but with the iPhone, Android phone and now Palm Pre all sporting flashy OSs, you really need to bring it with 5.0 in order to be competitive.

sheerheartattack

So...OS 5.0 is OS 4.7 with a black boot screen?

Glad you guys weren't forgotten about.

crysis63

lol, 4.7 with new boot screen, so true, that seems to be the main attraction of OS 5.0.

anderl72

i like honest reviews and under no circumstances I go to 5 this is religous mode

paulrotc#CB

any clue on when the Storm 2 will be released. I don't think I want the current hardware with new software. That might be a recipe for disaster.

soundium

This version was released in Apr 2009 and is sssssoooo very old, and very buggy!
My Goodness Me!

Kolbe

Looks exactly the same as the OS now.

Joey Babs

Ummm cool???? It just makes me more pissed off that the storm 2 is coming give or take a year from the release of the original storm. Same idiotic crap Apple does with the iphone. The influx of mundanely different and repackaged devices to choose from is getting mighty silly..... It takes sincere value and iconisims away from what your holding in your hand. endrant/

saranya

I dunno, I'm so fed up with my storm that BB has lost a customer. I'll revisit them when they actually do something different with the OS.

I'm heading back over to Palm (previous treo owner back in the day) for now as I've really enjoyed using the new Pre. iPhone can kiss my butt.

kinggeoff

Storm is running really great with the newest wave of .151 hybrids. They can take their time with this one

SAVJR

keep us in touch with ignorance of the community.

laffmista

I am anxious to see how much better 5.0 actually is...

drake13

although we all kno RIM is ungodly slow at puttin out updates does anyone know when this one is suppose to release??
