Verizon to issue key BlackBerry Storm fix on Sunday

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Fri May 29, 2009

Verizon BB Storm Update

Verizon on Friday said it would deliver a key firmware update for the BlackBerry Storm. The patch should be available through RIM's update site at 9AM Eastern on Sunday, May 31st and as an over-the-air download for the phone itself at 4PM the same day. Verizon is vague on details of the fix beyond improving the "overall user experience" but is believed to fix important bugs, including one which would blank the screen or freeze during incoming calls.

Other additions should involve a more responsive camera, a better photo browser and other smaller fixes.

Verizon has been criticized for relatively sparse updates for the Storm since it launched in November, with its most important fix having come two weeks after launch to address the many initial bugs with the operating system. RIM eventually acknowledged that it was rushed into the launch and didn't have as much time to polish the release as it would have had otherwise.
