While there have been doubts over the arrival of the BlackBerry Storm3, now a notice sent to a developer may indicate that RIM might have shelved the idea entirely. The developer was told that the 9570, a refresh of the Storm2, was no longer being developed and that apps written for the device would have to be modified to fit other hardware. The leaked copy of the memo steers developers towards writing BlackBerry 6 apps for upgradable phones such as the Bold 9650 and Curve 3G. Considering that the Storm3 would probably only have featured slightly updated hardware, camera, and a newer OS to the current Storm2, perhaps this move isn’t too surprising.
