Storm 2 User Guide Found In 5.0.0.191 Storm OS Leak

RIM has always had a habit of putting userguides in all their downloads, leaked or official you'll always manage to find one within the packaging--even if it may be the incorrect one. Often times before, if you reviewed the files in the OS as well such as the BlackBerry.alx file you'd learn the codenames of unrealeased devices rather easily.

So if you're looking for a fun game to play on your...
