Verizon device training info

With all the information about the BlackBerry Storm 9530 that Verizon continues to push out, it’s a bit surprising that the two things we don’t know about RIM’s first touchscreen BlackBerry: it’s price and release date.

Engadget just got their hands on an Verizon internal training document that indicates employee training on the BlackBerry Storm 9530 will be completed by November 2nd, leading many to think that the earlier rumors of an early November release date are right on the money.

So I guess the big question now is how much it will cost.

    WOW!!! I just got off the phone with Verizon!! I asked how much will the phone be at FULL RETAIL COST!!! Its $499.99!! However I do not qualify for my upgrade till sometime next year!! Thank goodness I have an corporate account. We get a nice discount. Something is better then nothing….

    But in all reality! What were they thinking when they came up with hat price? The economy is a mess right now, no one is going to buy that phone for that price. Mark my word, that phone is going to be on sale very soon!!!

    P.S. I went to the website to check out the Specs. That phone weights 5.5oz Thats seems kind of heavy. I have a Palm and it weights 4.2oz

    @sexisag:
    While you were on the web site did you bother to look at what other Blackberry smartphones or Treo or Blackjack or whatever go for at off contract price? $499 is a bargain for what you’re getting with Storm, bad economy of not nobody is selling phones to LOSE money!

    No I didnt check, I am not interested in any other phone but the STORM!!! $499. was just a shock, since I am used to getting new phones with my upgrade. This would be the first time I’m buying a phone for the full retail price.
