UPDATE 1: Bad news folks. The latest news from Telus is that the BlackBerry Storm won’t launch until December 8th. This puts the Bell November 21st date into question as well, simply because Telus is expected to launch first.
UPDATE 2: The Vodafone BlackBerry Storm has been officially announced, and will launch on November 14th for business customers in the UK. Expect the average consumer to get it around the 18th.
UPDATE 4: New info suggests a possible November 24th launch date and a $199 price tag after a mail-in rebate.
UPDATE 5: Finally! The Verizon BlackBerry Storm will officially launch November 21st for $199 on a 2 year contract!
After spending time with the BlackBerry Storm during BBDC, it was a little hard to leave it behind. Thankfully, I did so with full knowledge that it would be returning to my awaiting hands very soon. Here’s the latest in BlackBerry Storm launch rumors for a variety of carriers:
PhoneArena is reporting that Verizon will begin selling the BlackBerry Storm in corporate Nov 15th and the following day at BestBuy locations. Ever since our initial Nov 4th post, the release date has been pushed back one day at a time. While we’ve been currently hearing the 19th from our sources, it’s close enough to not matter too much.
BlackBerry News seems to be wavering back and forth between a November 7th and 11th release date for the Vodafone BlackBerry Storm. CSRs place pricing at around £350 ($538 USD). Please take a look at BBNews’ photos for this post, it made my day.
As we reported earlier today, it appears that Bell may receive the BlackBerry Storm on November 21st, shortly after the two releases above. I wonder if Telus will try to undercut them by releasing on the 20th.
