This Engadget post references some less-than-scientific reports that claim many (as much as 50%) of the Storm devices are being returned. We can’t confirm this figure, and I doubt RIM will do so.
However, these previous Storm users are most likely migrating to other smartphones – Apple iPhone, BlackBerry Bold, Windows Mobile, Palm OS, or the new Android-based G1.
Rest assured your sync needs are covered with CompanionLink, which will sync with any and all of these platforms.
BlackBerry Storm users will need to update their CompanionLink Express or CompanionLink Pro software to version 3042 or later. The update addresses a change in the new version of the operating system – BlackBerry OS 4.7 – that ships on BlackBerry Storm devices.
The update is only required if you have a BlackBerry Storm phone. You do not need the update if your current version of the software is working with your phone.
