Vodafone BlackBerry Storm 9500

I’m sure this will make all of our UK readers happy. Yesterday we published Vodafone UK’s official launch date for the BlackBerry Storm 9500, November 14th, but noticed that their Storm pre-order page contained a November 18th date. After contacting Vodafone for clarification, we received this timely response:

Hello,

You will be able to go to store and buy a BlackBerry Storm on 14th November. The pre-order phones – and there are 1000s – will be despatched next week and we expect customers will have their pre-order by next weekend. The 18th is just a precaution in case customers are not in to take delivery of the phone at the weekend and delivery needs to be attempted again the following week.

Notice to UK BlackBerry Cool readers: stay at home to make sure you get your BlackBerry Storm!

    Okay–this is for sure now. It’s funny how this phone has continually been pushed up in release date. Part of me understands there are last minute functionality a performance tweaks needed, but the other part can’t help but wonder how much of it is a marketing ploy to get people more interested.

    Didn’t happen as planned for business customers. The BES version has now been delayed due to ‘transit’ issues.
    Vodafone didn’t even have the guts to tell their customers directly, they sent out a generic email at 5:40 on Friday night to tell them they wouldn’t get the Storms on Monday.
