    At least y’all will have to wait less, not longer, right? We’re finally allowed to publish what the BlackBerry world has been waiting for — the official release date for the BlackBerry Storm. November 21st is the date that shall live in infamy. Well, not really, but you get the point! So… does this mean any Joe Six-pack or Joe The Plumber can walk into a Verizon Wireless store and get a Storm? Yes sir! The 21st is the general availability date and that includes corporate stores, telesales, online, etc. The price? $199 like we’ve said all along. That’s after a $50 MIR, but hey, do you really care at this point? Nope. We’re also told stock levels will be enormous, so there shouldn’t be any issue getting a unit on launch day. Just don’t come cryin’ to us if some pimple-faced adolescent manages to grab the last one right before you. Let’s quickly recap so there is no confusion:
    • November 21st
    • $199

    Can someone get me a Canadian release date? I know we usually are right behind the US but I just want some certainty... I'm sure everyone can understand where I'm coming from

    Hooray, just used a PTO day for the Storm Launch.
    Only thing is, not sure where to get it yet.
    I wonder if full retail will be the same at Verizon and Best Buy.
    (and is Best Buy launching on Nov 21st as well...)

    It comes with the 8 gig sd card for 199 its gonna be awesome im very anxious now. I just got off the phone with verizon for line 40 minutes and they are anxious 2. the woman i spoke to tested the phone the other day and said the new os is very fast and responsive. the screen is calibrated just right. There will also be an ample supply at each store and its based on a first come first serve basis.
