“You’re invited to a secret presentation on the upcoming BlackBerry Storm. But just remember, we at RIM don’t care about company secrets any more, so you Italians in the audience should feel free to blatantly hold your camera phone above your head and film the entire thing.” Seriously, RIM, is this what you’re going to be like from now on? We all know that you have a touchscreen device in the 9500 and 9530 Storm, but you just have to make life difficult for all of us and make a half-assed attempt at keeping it secret, don’t you?  We’re speaking from the BGR team here, but when so much stuff about a phone leaks before there is a public press release, you have to start thinking the words “controlled” and “leak”. Anyway, the latest in a shamefully long parade of leaks is a video presentation given to an Italian audience. It’s pretty nicely done and gives great insight into how OS 4.7 will work on a touchscreen device. Hell, it made us want one.
