    Verizon Wireless sees 1 million BlackBerry Storms sold to date!

    Advertisement



    intomobile.com:

    Regardless of hardware niggles and craptastic firmware, RIM’s BlackBerry Storm has apparently been tearing it up on Verizon’s network. Verizon Wireless today announced that they’ve gone Platinum with the BlackBerry Storm - the leading US wireless carrier has sold an impressive 1 million Storm units since its launch last November!

    The number, while impressive, might have been higher had Verizon managed to pull off the BlackBerry Storm launch smoothly. Alas, buggy firmware and limited stock on hand may have kept Verizon from pushing out more Storm handsets.

    BGR guestimates the return rate somewhere around 35-50%, while Verizon denies such a high return rate.

    "Here’s the skinny on this situation… We had heard various return rates on the Verizon BlackBerry Storm from three (actually four, but we’ll discount the last one) extremely credible sources of ours. These ranged from 35-50% in some markets/regions. That is an absurdly high figure, folks. While we trust our sources, we wanted to continue to dig until we wrote up a post on it here. We let a publication quote us on that, because that is what we had heard. No harm, no foul. But we weren’t going to post on it here until we had 100% confirmed it.

    Verizon Wireless hit us up and here’s what a Verizon Wireless official had to say: “The Storm has the lowest return rate of any of our PDAs and at this point in its life cycle, it has the lowest return rate of any PDA we currently sell.”

    We’ll let you guys do all the talking. Own a Storm? Happy with it? Returned it? Know friends that are happy/returned theirs? Hit us up so we can get some good feedback and your thoughts on this."

    It is a shame to hear so much bad vibe. I'm personally on my 2nd blackberry model (a bold) and I've definitely been bitten by the blackberry bug. I'd love to stay with them but the issues I've had with my bold and the fact that the storm seems to experience the same puts me off. The fact that verizon has shifted so many handsets is great news as I believe it shows rimm as a rapidly growing and popular handset. I only hope their next release is made without any of the previously mentioned problems. Long live blackberry :-)

    Wouldn't it be easier just to put (serious) when you weren't being sarcastic? You wouldn't have to do it near as often. LOL
