Rumor has it that Verizon will launch the Blackberry Storm 2 on October 14. You can see the comparison between Storm and Storm 2 below. Briefly, Storm 2 comes with Wi-Fi, more free RAM and Flash, decreased shutter lag time on the camera, and better touch screen entry.

Also, Verizon is getting ready for some Android love with Motorola Schoeles launching in October too and soon followed by HTC Desire. Though dates for Desire are not yet announced or leaked.

Finally, Microsoft announced that it will launch Windows Mobile 6.5 on October 6 on devices from variety of hardware makers and on various networks including Verizon.

This is all still firmly in the realm of rumors and speculation for the time being, but some purportedly legit internal Verizon documents obtained by are offering a bit more fodder suggesting that the BlackBerry Storm 2 could be launching in October — or October 14th, specifically. The same documents also point to an October launch for Motorola’s Android-based Sholes smartphone, as well as a “mid-October” launch for LG’s vx8575 “Chocolate Touch” (which we assume is the same or a variant of the BL40 Chocolate Touch). All in all a pretty big month for Verizon — assuming everything actually pans out as rumored, of course.
