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!

devochka

GatorBait1996

I'm tired of all the neigh-sayers out there about the Storm, the Crapple iPhone has taken a dive by being part of the worst (AT&T) network - Blackberry in general including the Storm has superseded the iPhone hands down!

jrolls09

Always could use a extra phone. hope the storm 2 has less problems.

Danish Haidri

Very interestingly put! I have read somewhere that the release date for Storm 2 is September 2009. I guess no one will be winning any?

DrewCSchultz

bling007

People bought the Storm simply because they could not afford the iPhone or they disliked their carrier. There is no comparison.

mfranchina

TekWarren

phloxian

*Insert witty post-as-contest-entry here*

Still excited for release, whether or not it comes out this month!

shifted-is

Just bought the Storm in April this year but to have the latest and greatest would really send me into tingles.

Hoping for a June 1st but not expecting a release til November/December this year, let's hope they take the extra time to make sure the OS and all features are working correctly. My camera still does not work in mine, odd? Keeps complaining about closing down all the apps, but all the apps are closed so gonna try update it tonight xD

bluemsw

I can't wait until the new storm comes out. It would make it perfect to get one for free.

Something83

hook me up for a storm 2 !! :D

GreekElite

Love my storm but would love a storm 2 twice as much :D

Munchoboy

I'm willing to place odds they could have it out this month.

But then again, I have been known to be (stupidly) optimistic in the past. :P

timidement

Too much speculation!

But hey it's still sweet to have a slight chance at the Storm2.

I've waited silently with my Pearl 8130 while the devices slowly but surely get better and better.

Please have a contest for the BB-slider!!!

cadetmiller23

Plazmic Flame

For the love of Jeebus, Storm 2 me!!!!!!!!!!!!

kingglory

The storm 2 will not be out in July @ all. The new Blackberry "TOUR" will be out on the Verizon network. The Storm 2 is not in the line up until 4th quarter of 2009. Fixing the bugs and the latest release on the Storm 1 was a jump in launching the Storm 2.
Crackberry gets to hold on the $$ for this contest,LOL.

TungstenGT

I hope it comes out soon.

credemann

June 29th will be the release date for the "Storm 2" because June 27th is my 18th wedding anniversary and that would be just my luck 2 days late!

bigboyhat35

My Guess is they will announce the phone for the end of July.

crackcaz

I NEEEEEED one to feed my addiction!!!

crackcaz

That my phone got stolen at Nairobi Airport & now I'm living like a freak without any contact with the outside world except fb cause the phone had all my digits

frstrspndr189

oo Can't wait for the upgrade

zoomzoom9

I guess I'll enter anyway! Looking forward to upgrading from the "Storm 1"!

nneptune#CB

I am leaving a comment.
I really need the Storm 2.
The whole touchscreen thing is a cool concept, but
the first storm just isn't cutting it yet.

It's strange how iPhone users are mocking this. " Second model already? See. It suc*s!"

Well, what model of the iPhone are they on now?
And how many OSs did they have to go through.

Being as that I got my storm in January, I won't be able to get one for quite awhile.

Free is good and appreciated!

rhubert

Worth a shot in the dark even if my only luck is bad luck.

candcaine9

I would like to thank my kindergarten teacher, Miss Vincent for teaching me the importance of asking questions. My parents for knowing I was wonderful. And Crackberry for my free Blackberry Storm 2... You are the bestest..

Thanks Again,
Reality Chick

zrxoa1

But ya never know ;-)

crackboytoy

gzigoris

George

Golden-Bear09

I would love to win a free blackberry

raycer

cause ill take one :)

ducman77

I would love to try out the new storm 2

Lugnut75327

If I were to be given free a storm 2 to try out?? I would !!! On the other side of the coin, I wish BB would concentrate more with correcting problems with already out on the market phones, than make big deals out of newer phones getting ready to hit the market. But HEY, that's production right?

BTG1987

I can't wait for Storm 2 because I love Storm 1 so much, I dono how they can make it better!

minigts

Any and all who have had their Storm from Day 1 and have stuck by RIM should get a Storm 2 free with a trade-in of the original Storm. I'm also up for getting one for free. :)

joker42179

count me in >>crosses fingers<<

nickiabeyta

i need a new blackberry storm to many problems w/ the one i have. please please please

thegotoguyy

although storm 1.0 did not meet the standards of other touch phones, i always have faith in RIM to break all of my expectations so i have no doubt storm 2.0 will be hit =)

superdaddy08

Can't wait for it got to b june 30 end of the month surprise kinda thing.

jrgmillan#CB

The first one was I imagine the second will be no exception, and now that
It will be WI-FI capable I hope to win to see what new adventures it will
Bring, I mean you never heard of an IPHONE saving a kidnapped woman?

Recently this month,My friend Tim's wife Lisa passed from ovarian cancer. She was the light and love in his life. As any wife can do, she kept him organized and balanced. Please crackberry pick us so my husband and I can offer help to him! We know this will help bring organization to his world again. My husband and I each have our own Blackberry Storm(s) so we don't have a need for it as he would.

Thanks,
Alayna n Ryan

Rest in Peace Lisa W.

I will thank God if we are the winners. For us it will give us the opportunity to help a friend in need. Lord hear our prayer!!!

I don't expect to win a Storm 2 if it does come out since everything I've tried to win in any kind of contest always is the fail,but I'm going to cross my fingers anyway and hope like usual for the best.

parat8t9

Goldwinger

Not looking like a June release. Down to just 7 days. I think Verizon sponsored this contest and only has one to give away, so hang on, June 30th will be the release date. :-)

porkchop0101

Please pick me, it would be so cool to be one of the first with this Storm.

Taternater

EddieOzone

I was burned on Storm 1, replaced it with a Curve. That ain't so bad... for a two year old phone! Can ya hook a crackbrother up?! Please!

thegotoguyy
