RIM and Verizon are reportedly getting ready to release a software update for the new BlackBerry Storm that will fix many of the issues that early adopters have reported.
In the last few days, reports of both Firmware 220.127.116.11 and Firmware 18.104.22.168 have emerged on the Web. However, the status of these updates is not clear. It’s not known when they will be released to the public, or how they will be distributed.
Those who have access to these updates say that they significantly improve the performance of the Storm. The lags many have reported — such as when switching the screen from portrait to landscape mode — are greatly reduced.
The battery life of this smartphone will also reportedly be improved.
