Verizon takes the BlackBerry Storm to the streets

Comment

Awhile back, the Boy Genius Report casually mentioned that one of their readers had seen Verizon employees giving people on the street $20 for hands on testimonials with the BlackBerry storm. Apparently that reader was right and Boy Genius has the video.

The testimonials are highly enthusiastic, but remember, they were paid for them. I should note, though, that the only thing Verizon PR hasn’t done is get Ebert and Roper to do a special “BlackBerry Storm 2 thumbs waay up” infomercial.

Verizon showing BlackBerry Storm commercials

Comments

Considering the amount of information Verizon ‘leaked’ about the BlackBerry Storm before the official press release last night, it’s not really surprising that they would air nationally televised commercials before anyone knows about the device.

Even though the video is grainy and it gives no real information about the device, I think it aptly depicts the exact moment the world stopped caring about the iPhone. Verizon’s PR department deserves a BIIIIG raise.

Playing with the BlackBerry Storm (simulator) is fun!

Because I was sick yesterday, I have a bit of catching up to do in terms of BlackBerry news. Good friend kyle from sister site QuicklyBored covered for me, but he doesn’t know anything about BlackBerrys and thinks the iPhone is great. I digress.

Although I would easily shank a BBCool Intern in the back without blinking if it put a BlackBerry Storm in my hands. Playing with the BlackBerry Storm Flash Simulator at Vodafone UK is (almost) as fun. It’s a really great way to promote a device and is worth a look for the flashy audio and video. One thing it can’t simulate, however, is how ClickThrough (the Storm’s haptic touchscreen interface) will work. Initial impressions from both Engadget and Gizmodo seem high, though.

Still looking for more information about the BlackBerry Storm (you’re sooo greedy, aren’t you?). Well, lucky for you I decided to forgo sleep in order to get a few more posts about the BlackBerry Storm up, just because I love the BlackBerry Nation.

So here you go, RIM’s official release of BlackBerry Storm specs and features in one nice neat post. Info after the jump (images are big)!

Ohh, the boys at Gizmodo also got a hands on with the BlackBerry Storm. Hey wait a minute, the pictures seem to have been taken at the same place as the Engadget hands on, which makes me think they were corralled into a van (blindfolded), taken to a secret hideout, and given 20 minutes with the device before it self-destructed. What I want to know is: where was BlackBerry Cool’s invite? I would have loved being thrown into a van blindfolded to see the Storm. Caught in a spam filter, I hope. Sigh.

Anyways, you can check out the highlights from Gizmodo’s hands on with the device after the jump.

Damn those gadget hounds over at Engadget!! It seems as though they were able to get their hands on a BlackBerry Storm long enough to write up a brief impressions post. We’ve taken the liberty of pulling out the most important bits, as well as the best screen shots from their wonderful image gallery after the jump. Enjoy!
