Anyone waiting around for the new BlackBerry Storm 9530? Verizon Wireless just announced that the first touch-screen smartphone from BlackBerry will be available Nov. 21 in stores and online for $199.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate, with a 2-year contract.
It sure looks nice but will CrackBerry users really give up on that thumbpad? The Storm, previously known as the BlackBerry Thunder, is just one of many BlackBerry devices rolling out this season. Most recently, AT&T Wireless launched the BlackBerry Bold last week. And there’s the new BlackBerry Pearl, available from T-Mobile.
So many touch-screen phones are out now, much thanks to the original Apple iPhone. They’re all beginning to look the same to me…
That’s pretty much all the news for now. For more details, check Verizon’s special BB Storm sit at www.verizonwireless.com/storm.
