BlackBerry Storm2 9550 makes it to Verizon's web site; Buy one, get one free
It is October 28th and that means the BlackBerry Storm2 is now for sale at Verizon. Actually it is up on Big Red's web site where you can order it until the retail stores open later in the day. Priced at $179.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and your signature on a two year contract, the Storm2 is eligible for the carrier's BOGO promotion. This means bribing your spouse with a Storm2 of his/her own. Let us know how the sequel matches up with the first-gen 9530, or any other smartphone for that matter.

Suprised the usual Stormites haven't flooded this with rave reviews

Maybe I was missing something but I thought It was going to have 5MP camera. The website lists 3.2 MP. was This changed recently?

I'm sure GSM arena will be complaining about the camera. All the people there care about is megapixels, as if that's the only thing that matters.

Buy One Get One?? Boy, that sounds really good! However, you think they are doing this because they are under the impression they will have a much harder time selling this as opposed to the Original Storm? I'm not saying it is a desparate attempt, but it sure sounds like it.

Theres not as much hype for this as the first strom. I remember Verzon stores were crazy when this came out

THIS is what the 9530 SHOULD have been. Faster, lighter, better all the way around! iPhone......what's an iPhone?

I just love how VZW has just quietly made this phone available. None of the hype machine or anything that we saw last year with the release of the first Storm. I wonder if that has something to do with the fact that the last one was a total flop, anyway you look at it, and so to save some face in case this one doesn't work out as well, VZW is hyping the shit out of the Droid, and leaving this phone to just do what they hope it can do, and sell some units. I'm with *vzw fanman*: looking forward to the Droid more than any other VZW phone release in the near future.
