Well, lookee what we've got here. Someone managed to capture the unannounced, unofficial BlackBerry Storm 2 for Verizon Wireless on video. Feast your eyes on this.This is not the greatest, most revealing video ever shot, but it gets the job done for now.

What you'll see is the BlackBerry Storm 2 in some pre-release form. The hardware shows that the four physical buttons that are placed at the bottom of the original Storm are gone and have been built into the screen of the device itself as touch-sensitive buttons. Overall, it is a bit thinner, but maintains many of the same specs.

Those specs include the 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and autofocus, microUSB port, 3.5mm headset jack, power button, lock key, volume toggle and several other buttons.

The biggest change, of course, is the fact that clicking SurePress display is gone, in favor of a regular touch-capacitive display that looks and acts more like the display on the iPhone.

Neither Verizon Wireless nor RIM have admitted that this device exists, but the evidence seen below pretty much lets the cat out of the bag.
