Verizon shows off first BlackBerry Storm2 television ad
Remember the hype surrounding last year's launch of the BlackBerry Storm? The contests, the leaks, the television ads promoting the SurePress typing system, all of these things combined with the usual "iPhone-killer" mentality to bring long lines and sold out stores at Verizon. Now that the Storm2 is out with a vastly improved SurePress, Wi-Fi and BlackBerry OS 5.0, the handset is being overshadowed by the Motorola Droid and some other Android models heading to Verizon. Still, it is a BlackBerry and reviews for the sequel have been very good so the carrier has produced its' first television spot for the Storm2. Note the continued attack of AT&T! A big difference from last year's ads, to be sure. What do you think? Also, check out our brand new BlackBerry Storm2 review!

What sucks is even if they didnt i would still be stuck wit verizon well and or sprint but i hate sprint they always have extra cost on your bill and make it to dificult o get is right, But any way iverizon coverage is the best.Peaking of coverage i was wondering if temobile would have skipped 3g and instead went ahead since they were way behind that if they went right to 4g tech i bet they could have jumped head instead of playing catch up.
