BlackBerry Storm Gets Delayed but Price Drops $300!

Nov 9 2008 - 7:32am


Try this one on for size. So now that RIM's BlackBerry Bold has made its big bold debut [1], everyone is anxiously awaiting a release date for their next smartphone — the BlackBerry Storm.

Turns out, the Storm will not arrive by its expected Nov. 14 launch date, and has been delayed due to a software glitch; you can expect it by the end of the month. And the rumored $499 price tag? Scratch that one out the door too. Tipsters are claiming that RIM is feeling the need to compete with the iPhone on this one, therefore dropping the price to $199 [2] with a two-year contract.

And not only that, but it's my feeling that with this new price, the Storm will not only give the iPhone a run for its money, but T-Mobile's G1 [3] as well, since the G1 currently costs $180.
