Verizon has been blabbing all over the place about the fact that a Storm 2 is on the way, so they don’t really need to shroud the whole thing in secrecy at this point.
That’s right, folks. No top secret codenames in the inventory system, no shipping crates sealed shut with a declaration of all the ways they’ll eat your face if it’s opened too early; just an entry in the computer reading “DUM: STORM 2 MOCK UP”. While we’re hoping this means a Storm 2 launch is impending, a commenter at PhoneArena points out that Verizon sometimes sends the phones far ahead of launch. Jerks.
