Verizon has finally announced the BlackBerry Storm 2. The device will be available beginning October 28th, and it will run you $179.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a 2 year contract.
The BlackBerry Storm2 was rumored to be promoted with a Buy One Get One Free campaign but there is no mention of this in the press release. It’s possible that whoever put the marketing materials for the campaign, confused the 9550 and the 9530.
There are a couple of reasons why this launch may have been delayed. The BlackBerry Storm2 is rumored to have not passed technical acceptance at Verizon, as well as they have just released OS 5.0 for the Storm 9530 users. This means all Storm users, old and new, will at least be running the latest software.
