As we had analyzed in the teaser video from Salomondrin earlier last week, the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 and Storm 2 9550/9520 share the same back. If you closely, the camera placement is exactly the same with the flash on the right and camera lens on the left. The back cover itself is exactly the same on both devices, with even the same functionality in opening. The chrome bezel that goes around exists in both of these Berries. So what’s RIM up to? Disregarding the BlackBerry Bold 9700 for a second, it looks like RIM is making their devices more uniform so that next time you see someone typing away on a QWERTY device or making a phone call, you’ll know it’s a BlackBerry immediately by its design. We’re not completely disregarding the Bold 9700 only because it does have the same chrome bezel design that wraps around the back and sides.
