Verizon ends Buy One Get One promotion – Storm and Curve reduced

Verizon had an incredibly successful Buy One Get One promotion for BlackBerry devices but sadly it’s coming to an end. While today may be the official end date, Verizon will honor the BOGO promo through June 27th due to active advertising.

On the bright side, while the BOGO promotion is finished, BlackBerry devices that were under the BOGO promotion will be reduced by $50. This means great savings on the Curve and Storm.

Co-CEO of RIM Mike Lazaridis confirms more touchscreen devices

In an interview with Laptop magazine, co-CEO of RIM Mike Lazaridis said the company is planning more touch-screen BlackBerry devices and thinks its brand and push technology can help it weather the economic slowdown.

Although the BlackBerry Storm has got a lot of negative feedback, it was a crucial step for RIM to enter the consumer market with a touchscreen device. The SurePress technology took a new spin on touchscreen phones and it definitely helps the typing process.

“I think there’s some truth to the fact that these devices are becoming much more complicated, and of course we do a lot of testing every time before releasing these devices,” Lazaridis said about the Storm. “And I think it’s unfair. … That’s our first touch product, and you know nobody gets it perfect out the door. You know other companies were having problems with their first releases.”

Lazaridis also hinted that the company will be coming out with other touch-screen smartphones, but did not confirm reports that RIM is already planning a “Storm 2″ later this year that will have Wi-Fi and a new input method. Additionally, there’s speculation that the company is working on a BlackBerry that has a full QWERTY keyboard and a touch screen.

Here at BlackBerry Cool we know the Storm 2 is on its way. Whenever there is this much internet hype about something it usually happens. Plus, even if it isn’t called the Storm 2, from this interview as well as a host of rumors, we’re sure a Storm-like device will be hitting the market soon.
