After the hectic week that was CTIA, it seems a little strange that such a major announcement would come the following Monday, but the whole Internet is swirling with the possibility that Verizon will officially announce the BlackBerry Storm today. While no announcement has been made yet on either Verizon or RIM’s sites, or the rumored http://verizonwireless.com/storm it is still quite early in the morning on the West Coast. Like the rest of you, we’ll keep pressing refresh all morning to see what pops up.
With the leaked BlackBerry Storm YouTube video appearing last week, and the rumored November 1st launch date, the arrival of the much-anticipated touchscreen BlackBerry seems close enough for an announcement to make sense. So then why not during CTIA? Perhaps Verizon wanted the spotlight all to themselves instead of a shared stage with the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, or Apple’s “Let’s Rock” event. We’ll keep sniffing around for more info.
