UPDATE: Obviously, November 4th has come and gone, and while Americans have a new President, they do not have a new BlackBerry (unless you count the BlackBerry Bold). For the latest in BlackBerry Storm launch dates, please check our continuously updated BlackBerry Storm Launch Roundup Page. You’ll find launch information for Verizon, Vodafone, Telus and Bell.
We’re working pretty hard to confirm this right now, but it’s too exciting not to post, and falls in line with what has been reported recently on the blogs. A friendly tipster has been telling us that Verizon has settled on a firm launch date for the BlackBerry Storm 9530: November 4th. This would put the Storm launch two days after Verizon employees complete their Storm training, and right in line with famed rumor-monger Boy Genius’ ‘first week of November‘ time time line.
This is exciting news! That means the first touchscreen BlackBerry is almost exactly one month away. Too good to be true? We’ll do our best to find out for you.
