BlackBerry Storm 2 blowing in?

A Wi-Fi-enabled edition of the BlackBerry Storm is on its way later in the year, it has been rumoured.

According to a report from tech site SlashGear, the BlackBerry Storm 2 will arrive on US networks in September and will improve on by its predecessor by adding Wi-Fi and a five megapixel camera.

Meanwhile, speculation is mounting over what form the rumoured device’s new screen will take, with Boy Genius reporting that it will differ from the original handset.

Conversely, SlashGear claims that the BlackBerry Storm 2 will retain the same touchscreen.

News of developments comes as the company is increasingly seeking to broaden the appeal of its e-mail focussed BlackBerry handsets beyond their core market of business users.

Last week, BlackBerry handset owners finally got an official application store to rival Apple’s App Store when App World opened for business with some 500 wares on offer.
