*UPDATED* BlackBerry Storm officially announced by Verizon Wireless

The Storm has broken
*Update* As it was expected, thanks to the leakage of the press release, Verizon Wireless officially announced the Storm, the first touchscreen BlackBerry. See the link in the end for the official announcement

It looks like Verizon is prepping a press release to be released later today to officially announce the Storm. Of course it hasn't been a secret for a while, but we always love official, high resolution shots and spec sheets! blackberry.com/storm is active with a few demos, and Verizon has their own /storm site as well though it's decidedly less informative right now. One interesting note, GPS and BlackBerry Maps are mentioned in the same sentence so maybe Verizon will allow this to be GPS unlocked (maybe, there are a whole lot of superscripts after it.)

Engadget and Gizmodo have gotten some their hands on the Storm, and while they they had some gripes (size, browser) they came out impressed.
