Update 2 - Blackberry Storm launchdate now confirmed

In an update to our story last week, it appears Verizon has decided to take the NYC Blackberry Storm promo to the front page of verizonwireless.com with a large 'splash screen'.

Blackberry.com has now joined the 'online party' with a complete Blackberry Storm 9530 interactive user guide.

In the meantime, rumors are still circulating this morning regarding the launch price and official date.  A few notable websites are reporting $200 with a 2 year contract (and possibly less for business customers). We were unable to confirm this with Verizon.

Regardless, 'the buzz' is now everywhere, whether you're waiting for Verizon or Vodaphone.

Are we getting closer?  Will it be a iPhone 'killer'? 

It appears we'll know sooner rather than later .....

Stay tuned :)

Update 2 Nov 13 AM : Verizon has now confirmed that the highly anticipated Blackberry Storm will be available on November 21st.  Initial pricing is aggressive at $199 (with a new two year contract).
