Well, that touchscreen RIM device that we’ve been waiting for is one stop closer to becoming official on Verizon. EngMo received renderings of the Storm 9530 aka Thunder’s packaging and reveals some details that were unsubstantiated in the past. The Storm 9530 will be a world phone and includes a SIM card, an 8GB SanDisk microSD card preinstalled (huh?), but no signs of Wi-Fi.
In the past RIM’s touchscreen device has been called the Thunder and Storm leading some to believe that they’re different devices, but the truth is that the Storm will be the moniker for the domestic version while overseas carriers like Vodafone and our neighbors to the north Rogers will use the Thunder name. Hope that cleared things up.
