BlackBerry Storm OS 5.0 firmware officially released

The long-awaited firmware update for the original Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9530 has arrived, and OS 5.0 brings with it the promise of greater stability, new flick-gestures in the Storm's browser, and other usability tweaks.  Early user feedback suggests that the new software makes the Storm a whole lot more usable, with noticeably reduced delay between application changes.
