Yeah, we all know the first BlackBerry Storm was no where near the quality of other phones like the iPhone, G1 or Pre. But don’t worry Verizon users, as we mentioned briefly in our upcoming Verizon phones post, a newer (and hopefully much better) version of the Storm is coming, and it actually is looking really good.

Ok, so what exactly is in this new Verizon version? Boy Genius Report has got a scoop from some of their insiders that not only will the Storm 2 keep some of the good’ol features of the Storm– like Verizon 3G, the 3.2 megapixel camera, and the ability to use 3G GSM networks in Europe– but will also be adding WiFi (it’s about time), BlackBerry OS 5.0, AND a new touchscreen interface (better than the horrific SurePress on the first Storm, and supposedly being a regular touchscreen like the Pre, G1 and iPhone’s, but we don’t know exactly what’s going on there). This version is said to be coming later this year for Verizon.

Now you may be wondering, so what’s this talk of AT&T getting a Storm? Well, that according to BGR is also coming soon in the form of an AT&T Storm 2. Not much is currently known of AT&T’s new Storm 2 (though we’d assume it’s got similar features to Verizon’s, just with things like AT&T 3G instead of Verizon 3G), but BGR has confirmed with their sources that a model does exist, and hopefully will be coming soon. Keep those fingers crossed, and we’ll of course keep you updated as soon as we hear anything new.
