Verizon BlackBerry Storm in-stock November 16th?

Verizon BlackBerry Storm

Man, is it ever weird to be writing about rumoured BlackBerry Storm launch dates with RIM PR sitting across the table from you. Hot on the heels of some Rogers info, internal Best Buy inventory is showing Verizon’s BlackBerry Storm getting in-stock on November 16th. Previous rumours were pointing to the 1st., but hey, things get delayed, right? I’ve had a chance to try out the BlackBerry Storm just a little bit here at the BlackBerry Developer Conference, and have yet to really get the hang of the click-screen, but haven’t entirely given up hope just yet. Expect some pictures and video soon.

Quote of the morning from the press room:

Blogger A: “Man, there’s nothing going on today.”
Blogger B: “Let’s just make a bunch of stuff up and report on all the rumours.”
RIM PR: “Guys, I’m right here.

    THE BLACKBERRY STORM IS A PIECE OF JUNK. I WORK FOR VERIZON AND THE PHONE IS NOT ONLY VERY SLOW, BUT IT IS HARD TO OPERATE THE TOUCH SCREEN. A WINDOWS 6 XV6900 IS FAR BETTER. JUST GO AND TRY A DEMO. THE VOLUME OF THE RINGER IS VERY LOW ALSO. WHAT GOOD IS A NETWORK, WHEN YOU CAN NOT HEAR THE PHONE RING. THERE ARE MANY UPDATES NEEDED BEFORE I WOULD CONCIDER THIS PHONE. IF I WANT A PHONE THAT LOOKS AND WORKS AS GOOD AS A IPHONE I WOULD MOVE TO ATT AND GET ONE. VERIZONS MARKETING DEPT NEVER TESTS THESE PRODUCTS AND THINKS ABOUT THE RINGTONE VOLUME AND THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT. IN A MALL OR IN YOUR CAR WITH THE RADIO PLAYING YOU COULD NEVER HEAR THIS THING RING. TEST IT AGAINST THE XV6900. THE RING TONE ON THE 6900 WILL BLOW OU AWAY.
