RIM said planning "near-HD" Storm sequel

BBerry Storm Sequel Leak

Although the BlackBerry Storm has yet to ship, RIM is already developing a second model that would serve as the company's new flagship, two separate tips given to BGR suggest. The unnamed phone would be more a complement to the Storm than a replacement and would have a hardware keyboard in addition to the touch display. It would also carry a sharper, "near-HD" resolution and a five-megapixel camera versus the 3.2 of the device shipping soon.

Most other details of the phone are still unavailable at this early stage, though the company has previously filed for a touchscreen slider patent that would hide the QWERTY keyboard behind the display until absolutely necessary. Many existing devices use a similar pattern but often don't include a large screen.

Additionally, RIM is described as planning to revamp the Storm itself for at least two generations out, though little else is known besides their existence.
