RIM CEO Confirms Storm 2 In the Vaguest Way He Can

Illustration for article titled RIM CEO Confirms Storm 2 In the Vaguest Way He Can

RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie confirmed to Reuters that the company is planning a "next-generation" touch device, and that the original Storm was a "huge success." Well, at least "in terms of sales and adoption."

His ever-so-slightly defensive tone is of course justified by the tepid reaction that RIM's first touchscreen handset garnered from reviewers and users. However, regarding how the next Storm might address these weaknesses, he has virtually nothing to say: nothing about this alleged "new input method" (slide-out keyboard?); nothing about adding Wi-Fi; nothing about re-engineering that clumsy clickscreen; nothing at all about anything, really.
