Login to CrackBerry.com and leave a comment to this blog post for your chance to possibly win a BlackBerry Storm 2. Full Contest Details Below!

There's lots of buzz around the interwebs today that the BlackBerry Storm 2 could be hitting store shelves much sooner than most of us would think, with rumors suggesting a release as early as before the end of this month or sometime in June. As much as I would LOVE for this to pan out to be true, my CrackBerry gut says we'll all have to wait a little longer than that to get our hands on a store-purchased model.

Our best info right now slates pre-production of the next generation Storm (which RIM internally refers to by the codename BlackBerry "Odin") to begin early next month and from there an official release is usually a couple months out (VZW's technical acceptance process usually takes 2-3 weeks on a device, so even if they approved it off the first pre-production run we'd still be looking at July). And this is Verizon were talking about here... the pickiest of the carriers... who also have the BlackBerry Tour 9630 to roll out still and after a less-than-stellar Storm 1 experience won't want to put out Storm 2 until it's ready. And they won't want to stack the 9630/Storm 2 releases too close to eachother. At this point, I'd rate a May release as impossible, a June launch as potentially possible but improbable, a July release as targeted/more realistic but tight (think end of the month, fingers crossed), an August launch as more likely but if you throw in the usual BlackBerry/Verizon delays then I wouldn't even be suprised to see it launch later than that. As always in the world of BlackBerry, all will be known with time.

Storm 2 Before the End of June Contest: Let's have some fun here! I'd love to see a June launch happen. I really would. I just don't think it will. So to that end, we'll take a gamble and run one helluva contest.... LEAVE a comment to this blog post. For every day that the BlackBerry Storm 2 is on sale in the month of June 2009 we'll give one away to a CrackBerry member. So if the Storm 2 is available for purchase on June 1st, we'll give away 30 Storm 2's over the course of the month. If it's available on June 15th, we'll give away 16. If it's available on the 30th, we'll give away one. And if it doesn't go up for sale in June at all, we'll give away none. Should make for an interesting month, huh? Leave a comment for your chance to win!

sandra_17

Well, I've been torn back and forth between the Storm 2 and the Tour, especially when rumors of a possible physical keyboard on the Storm 2 (doubt that'll happen tho). However.......a free Storm 2 would definitely make the decision for me ;)

oldman1

Rumors spread faster than facts. In the spirit of rumors, sign me up for a free one.

sarllc

blueoval1

Do i want it? Hell YEA!!!

HarlemRockstar88

I have mixed feelings about this on the one side i'm happy a new storm is coming out but on the other i'm kind of mad it would be so close to the release of the first one which i got and have been waiting for an official OS since forever.

Papagrande1121

we will see what happens...

prncssmelissa

As much as I'm leary of the Storm..Here's hoping the Storm 2 is better! :) Pick me :)

sholling

I'd love one but I'd be shocked to see it out before September. I think crackberry will get off cheap on this one.

mkgostan

All I can say is that I certainly hope it works better than Storm 1...if it weren't for OS leaks on Crackberry I'd have thrown my Storm away within a month of getting it!

alphama1e

Hopefully it's a better setup than the first one.

cookemandan

I could definitely use one of these babies as my Storm is on .75 and no hope of an official release from Big Red!

blkprl1972

can't wait for the storm 2 to be out in June and cb helping with blackberry, push the release date to june. Thanks.

matt fig

I would love a new storm. Mine's all scuffed already

blkghost

I wish the storm 2 will be released the begining of june.... and hopefully if i am luck i will be chosen for the contest... lets just hope and wish

mjadler

I knew the original one wouldn't be around long. I'm glad I waited. Thanks Crackberry for keeping us up to date with the latest technology!!

fiore68

Greatet site, awsome contest... You rule!!!

ctoda83

pinoymapoy

leonliu

I want a BlackBerry Storm 2 to replace my 8700...

kmcart

drdealer

Hope the phone matches the coolness of the offer! :)

xqz

I can't wait for the Storm 2. I hope it comes with wifi

fiore68

Dreaming of RIM making me happy with the release on june 1st

wakebrdr94

how awsome would that be to have another storm? I'll take one!

fiore68

Wouldn't it be nice if it came out on may 28 ? Or something freaky like that! Jajajajaja nice

macmints06

RIM, Release this early so we can have a chance!!!

morrow95

I'm gonna go with the 8th as a release date.

Jeepthing9

fiore68

Kevin must be laughing beacuse he probably knows the release date, lol, its kinda fun.... We all want one!

mrman78

it kind of has a nice ring to it i think!!!
crackberry is my hero!

xDaddyPrimetime

I vant one... I vant one!!!

satowntx

AHHH please hook me up!! although i seriously doubt verizon will get this in june... or july... or august... OR september. maybe october

Koala88

I own the first gen. Storm and really enjoy it, I actually got one thinking the 2nd gen. would be out fairly soon. I was correct. :P Hope I win, would save me $$ on upgrading. Broke college kid here, the $30 a month is already a hit. Would be nice. :D

hobbs_906

think we got better chances of getting struck by lightning but im def in!!!

pyro290

It would be quite awesome if i could get a storm two seeing how i am a devoted storm one user from the start!!!!

DCBerry

But a free Storm 2 when it comes out would be awesome!

fiore68

I will be dreaming about getting my storm

Sirhill

My money is on August release. Verizon is by far the pickiest carrier and not to mention that the first storm had some really mixed reviews. So with that being said august it is but I would love to own one as soon as it hit the shelves. SO Pick me so I can say I own the STORM Deuce

DrewP

there is definitely room for improvement with the storm...lets hope they can follow through...

fiore68

I feel you near, i'm guessing you'll be on your way on june 2nd lol

tonester03

Hope it is better then the 1st! I want to win one!!!

ratt30

Yea Boy!!! That would be awesome!!!

MK5

I can't believe a new storm is almost out! Probably no way there's going to be a trade in available through Verizon. Sure would be nice to win a new one, even though I've only had my Storm for a month now.

fiore68

I want a storm 2 .... Yeah

tool212

love my storm be sweet to get the storm 2

fiore68

This must be one of the greatest contest ever, the only thing missing is the release conference on june 1st

dabanaberry

This should be interesting to see!:)

fiore68

I sooooooo will be counting the days to get my storm 2

saw8414

I like the idea but I don't want them to release it before its ready.

That being said, I hope they do release it in June so I can win one!

surfmly29

Had version 1 for 30 days and returned it. Just too much work to do some basic things you can do with a curve or other phone (i.e. speed dial is one push of a button (and hold)). For the storm v1, you had to a few things to get there (outside of voice dialing which doesn't always work).

Am interested in v2 though and hope it is better. Will keep my eyes on it. Of course it would be nice to win a free one!

pmtyler

count me in, I love my storm, but would love to get my hands on the new one:0)

wlz

hope that the storm 2 is a good upgrade

fiore68

I want me one of those.... Lol so cute

pauled23

I've had my Storm for 6 months, and its time for a new TOY!

SenorStorm

im hoping for june 1!! pick me pick me!!!!!

lrag4jc

vod332

rs105

Great job! I hope this thing comes out sooner rather than later!

burt_reynolds#CB

my storm 1 will not be cool anymore.

Thats why you need ot give me a storm 2.

adot16

That would be pretty cool!

RdSox3

I doubt it'll be out that soon but I hope it does! I want one!!!

tmclean3

UniqueLife

- Jamie

sbalcaen

Have the first storm, would love to get my hands on the second one when it comes out.

cvberry

I want a storm2...we should be rewarded for supporting RIM's first touchscreen phone.

pita2000

I would love win a storm 2. I have been addicted to my storm to the point that my wife is jealous, atleast untill i am asked to google something or provided directions or remember the grocery list...

byrd609

even though my storm didnt give me much trouble, i wonder if we could do a trade in type of deal... i doubt it would be released so early, but if it does, i wouldnt mind gettin a free one... ;)

brunbec123

Can't upgrade 'til next summer--here's hoping!!!

XDStorm

I don't think the release will happen that fast. But I will try for a free Storm 2 any day. Count me in.

iMoose

I want the Storm 2, because the Storm 1 sucks!

theox

Blackberry storm 2!! I really want one of these. DOWN WITH THE IPHONE!! He shouldn't have been invited to the reunion in the first place lol..

Jon133

I didn't win anything in the million user draw. please man, just one time, then i'll peace it.

mattallsop

how about this crackberry... I'll give away 10 everyday for the days that the storm 2 is out in june... Thats how sure i am that it wont be released anytime close to the first prediction!!! Id go with september at RIMs rate... 2010!

Walbert#CB

What a great idea for a giveaway! my Storm2 will launch June 1st, so that the most people will win one "two"
Good Luck!

Drentz

Come on Crackberry pick me.

1singleguy

Would love to try out one of these.

BehaviorGuy

I have been happy with my Storm so far; it would be great to try out the next generation phone. Give me a Storm 2 and I'll give you short term and long term reviews.

jrpayan

I currently own a blackberry storm. I would be nice to win a phone that hopefully works.

zlaki

Storm 2 launch... wow, just that brings a smile on my face. How about I even win it. My smile would surpass jack nickolsons from the Joker.

asianpeep

My gut also doubts the release, but.. I'm an optimist give them the benefit of the

doubt. Doesn't hurt to try! :)

rsdean0001

Please enter my name into the contest. I have the Storm 1 and would love to get a chance to own a Storm 2.

IrishJeff

Have a storm 1 and love it. Having a storm 2 would make my life complete. To steal a line from LOTR "my precious"

wolframd

I hope that i will win this because i cannot wait ´till it´s gonna be released in europe ... :o)

HardcorePooka

I'll leave a comment. What's the worst that can happen... I get nothing? (I hopes I get something though)

ReeseyKups

I'd love to give the storm 2 a try....for FREE! Count me in to win.

booberry327

OMG....they can't even get the first piece of crap working correctly and they are bringing out #2? I wish I had never bought this stupid Blackberry. I am very disappointed in the Storm...it was a waste of money....A LOT of money.

Jawbone220

Sweet. I'd love to get the storm 2

Jrp1969

Storm 2? Yes please.

alphakenywunup

My storm is looking for a soul mate... :)

stoke_no_s

Hopefully lightning will strike this time...

bobo_200_5

to have a chance and win one of the blackberry storm 2s'.

pablosoto

i hope it launch on june, so we have a shot winning a new BB

Stormer1122

It would be nice to see, but seeing how I just got mine back in November, the only way I could afford an upgrade/trade-in is to win one! Would be cool to see.

corsig

It's never gonna happen but if it does pick me LOL

smiley83co

I hope they do release it so i could upgrade. I am tired of having to do a software upgrade every other week. But if they do they will be opening up a huge problem for existing storm users that have been told that they have to keep waiting for a new offical software update. It would also hurt the tour sales too.

So i am hoping for the June 1 launch. Cause I would love a free one from crackberry!!

marcusd#CB

hi,
i think relase on 30th will be early enough, i just need 1 storm 2 :)

KronicSperm

I'm actually quite anxious to see what differences they will have in this new "upgraded" Storm. Hell, I would probably dumb my current Storm for the Storm 2 if I like it better (which is a VERY strong possibility!)

branco

I REALLY WANT THIS PHONE!!!! GIVE ME ONE!!!!

seezaar

Lets hope this one got wi-fi

tonlew

i just got a storm....guess i can take it back :D

papagocb

Just in time for my birthday....lets go storm 2

M6Boss

Ready to upgrade to version 2

benkleyn

I'll take a free Storm 2!

jhby

My contract with Verizon isn't up 'til next year, but I would love a Storm 2 (Odin). I wanted the original, but wasn't allowed to upgrade before my renewal date. I really don't want to wait until next year! ;-)

jhby

balsamic

i dont believe it will happen, but want one jus the same.

coffeeman#CB

Me, Me, Me. If I don't win one I probably will not be getting one anytime soon. I have only had the Storm for 6 months.

badj101

I feel that every who has the first Storm should be entitled to a free Storm 2 anyway (especially if they've had as many problems as I've had). But I love my Stormie nonetheless! I'd LOVE to have a free Storm 2!

morganm00

... is that it won't even come out in June. I'm betting August.

StrykerWolf

Man, and I just got my Blackberry Storm a month ago....

Kopko

Curve just died so the sooner the better....

send2steph

If this is true, I'm going to need the new one for free. I can't imagine paying for a new one so soon after the original.

Tay19

i want that storm 2!!

RyzBerry

I like storm 1, but I'll take storm 2 for free!

Tay19

I want that Storm 2

slater22

So I figure why not post just in case. I also do not think it will release in june. But if it does I have a chance now :-)

pilotmdw

How about at least 3 no matter when it comes out!

kwilder

Doubt is will make a June release.

bb-rookie

I have a Storm right now and Love it. I does have it's issues and it's the 4th one Ive had but I still love it! It's kinda like my wife. At the end of the day after all the nagging and other things she does that gets on my nerves. I still Love her. Hopefully it will come out on June 1st. Almost 6,000 posts. What's the odds? Oh well, please pic me if it does happen to come out. Thanks!!!

kwilder

If it's on you, I'm in.

thebear8me

I would be real surprised to see this launched in June. Guess we will see.

Charlutso

I sure would like to get my hands on a Storm 2, however, not sure that this will happen in the near future.

moni19

I'm ready for an upgrade, although I really like the og storm I have now...

ncbell13

I hope it is better than the first one.

strawbabble

my birthday is june 18! what a wonderful gift that would be!!

BgDM

Interesting contest concept. I love it!

Can't wait for this thing to launch. I was hesitant about the first one. Hopefully this one will be somewhat improved.

BgDM

berrymack

Count me in. Don't think it will happen, but let's hope.

g00se

I'll have a run at it.. June is very soon though, I don't see it happening

kchilds

I could use a new Blackberry.
June 1 sounds good.

gearhead2069

BlackBerry Storm 2... Bring on the WiFi! Its about time verizon.

hokieguy

finally a storm that will actually function.....1GB of memory will def. do the trick

dab745

Good luck too ALL. Thanks

sig7707

Yes, I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really,really, want a STORM. :) My old curve needs updated.

nightshadedude

Figured I might as well give it a shot.

liuqing

yes i wannnnnnnnnnnnt get one ,

I'd rate a May release as impossible 6/9!!!

defcon3

I so wish to win one of these marvels, I cannot wait!

Storm24

I will take two if ya got em... :~)

Locksheema

What are we going to do tonight Brain?

Same thing we do every night Pinky! Firstly, when the Storm 2 come out in June and I win one, BRILLIANT! If I win one, I'm pretty sure I would have the only one in Africa (I live in South Africa). with my new Super Storm, I would firstly take over South Africa and then the rest of Africa. Single handidly I would make Blackberry the only legal phone and then plot world domination.

Braaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

supermike437433

Would love to have this device as soon as possible. Hope for a June release.

piggy12

Sometimes rumors do come true...

Just had to put my 14 year old dog, Odin, to sleep. Best dog ever.

canadianexpl

Can't wait...
June is going to be great.

phraegius

I guess this means no VZW udpate for Storm 1'z. =(

cigarbox

Storm 2 .....I am ready !!!

robmack

Storm 2 coming less than a year after the first storm? i want one! waitt I just heard rumors of a storm 3 coming in sept?!? LOL

zee921

Sure would be a good way to win my first contest!

HenrySe1

I hope that RIM and VZW have updated the Storm 2. I have resulted to downgrading back to my LG Voyager b/c of several issues that the Storm 1 has with restarting and freezing up. Although, later today I am going to try the new leaked .148. Hopefully Storm 1 owners won't get left out of the updates.

goatbarn

If I get a Storm 2 I am peeing on my Storm 1.

kicks

Here's to hoping it comes out towards the beginning and that I win one :)

fandum

This would be too funny!!! But I am down to getting 1.

yakillinyateam

I do love my storm since i upgraded to .148 but i wouldnt mind checking out the storm 2 for free....love this site btw

secrtsrvc

I soooooo need a Storm 2!!!!!

pharos1

I would like to have it and replace the my 8130....

Please count me in.

arjunp

i want it soooooo bad

VberryStar

Hey folks... I've been putting up with all of the quirks of the 9530 Storm and have been waiting, waiting, waiting for the new OS to OFFICIALLY arrive. I've been "playing by the rules" and not adding the leaked OS and have been waiting patiently. My patience, unfortunately, is running somewhat thin although I still love my Storm. Please help me and allow me to have the new one. I love Crackberry! You guys rock!

zeno1300

I am hoping for a June 1st release. I just feel sorry for those that bought the orginal storm..

mt420

Storm 2 coming out in June.. fat chance! Either way.. if it does come out, I hope its not until my new every two is ready to be used.

dancadman

I don't see it happening....but, I would try one out! I like my Storm!

jam510

I reallllyyy hope that a Storm 2 comes out soon. My curve is getting borring :(

Jjwertz

Would love to get my hands on one of those this site rocks. I'm hoping for 30 storms that would be nice

Barganman04

Hey listen, being a realist never precluded anyone from winning cool stuff! Truthfully, I think it is UNLIKELY we will see the Storm 2 in June. Hey we don't even have a VZW approved OS update for the STORM 1 yet and that is rumored to be released for just about every week! At least that is according to the yidiots who trust the VZW rep who told me If I stand on my head, count to three, and chant ALI BABA! ALI BABA! then it will come EVENTUALLY. Lets be real guys, we probably wont see the Storm 2 in June. But if I am wrong, and trust me I hope I am, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WIN ME A STORM 2 !!!!

goldynchyld

I love my Storm, but how will I look watching this movie when the sequel is out? Storm 2 coming soon? I hope so!

mary@mcgar.com

LOL - I really want one!!!!!!!

MichelleTX

Hope the June release turns out to be true. Would love to try it out!

Berry Babe

I HAVE BEEN CRACKED OUT ON MY BERRY FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I DESERVE THIS... I NEED THIS.... PICK ME, PICK ME, PICK ME, AHHHHHHHHH PICK ME!!!!!!!!!!

wiwic9

Worth a shot... Maybe Storm II will come with a decent OS!

kdw201

I would love a free Storm 2 or Odin or whatever.

Jedi_Storm

I am an addict and being so i will need my fix!!!!!!!!!!!

el latigo

I am hoping to see the calm after the storm… 2!

Cliff Hanger

Verizon will probably hold it up but we can all hope for
June 1st. Please

randall2580

and one I would like to win!

jxgomez

I have *no* complaints with the Storm One--my main concern as a Verizon customer is that they'll leave me behind once the II comes out...

For what it's worth: some day, I hope to graduate to being a 'real' BlackBerry user!

beneeters

I would love to have the new storm 2!

GiGi_37

Please Please Please!!

Jeff K

hope it launches early in June and I win one!!

neuro

This will be out by June. I've been surprised before, hence the comment.

Innerchild

What an interesting twist... it adds more drama to an already much anticipated launch. Here's hoping there's 30 new Storm 2's heading for new homes in June compliments of CrackBerry!

grooveracer

Hello,

I want to win, please pick me.

Thanks for the contest.

Walk Alone

Great contest that I wanna win !
