BlackBerry Storm contract price cut to $99 by Verizon

BlackBerry Storm contract price cut to $99 by Verizon
Verizon has cut the price for the first touchscreen BlackBerry, the Storm, to $99.99 after a $100 discount, with a two-year contract. This could be a sign that the Wi-Fi enabled sequel, the Storm 2, is getting closer to Big Red's shelves. Just this past week, we reported that the dummy model of the Storm 2 had been apparently found in the carrier's inventory system. Ah, it just seems like yesterday that the dummy for the first version had been spotted in the stores and photographed by intrepid cellphone buffs. Time flies when your virtual QWERTY clicks. Anyway, for Verizon customers thinking of upgrading, the price cut brings the Storm under the price for the enV Touch featurephone, which makes for an interesting decision for some.

actually its gone down 50$ (199.99 -100$ MIR = 99.99) (Your example - 219.99 - 20 = 199.99 - 70 MIR = 129.99) I dont usually correct people but since I work for verizoon I dont want anyone getting confused by your post... STORM FTW!!!

What I meant by my post was that it went down 20.00 in store. You are right it has dropped down 50.00 altogether. I can see how my post was a little bit unclear.

It's a POS anyway, who cares.
