BlackBerry Thunder shows up in Verizon's inventory

BlackBerry Thunder due

An unheard of BlackBerry handset, the Thunder, showed up in Verizon's inventory recently, as this image shows. Whether or not this is just Verizon's own naming scheme for the recently spotted BlackBerry 9550, the Storm sequel, is not clear, but widely expected to be the case, although it could be the Curve 8520 that has also been recently making news. Another theory is that the Thunder name is just a placeholder for the Storm 2, as it does appear just under the Storm and follows correctly in alphabetical order.

If the Thunder turns out to the BlackBerry 9550, this would mean it has dual-mode CDMA and GSM world roaming support and will sport Wi-Fi as well as 3G data network access. It would also bring a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 480x360 touchscreen and BlackBerry OS 5.0. Pricing or release dates for the Thunder remain a question mark. [via CrackBerry]
