BlackBerry Storm/Thunder gets boxed for Verizon

Finally some more details on the highly anticipated BlackBerry Thunder or Storm 9530. As you may or may not know this will be RIM’s first touchscreen BlackBerry smartphone. Anyways it seems that Verizon will be using the BlackBerry Storm name and not Thunder as we saw before. This puppy will be packing a 8GB microSD card in box, 3.5mm headphone jack, Sim card slot for international roaming and NO Wi-Fi (sorry folks!).

Boy Genius seems to think that RIM will go with BlackBerry Storm for Verizon and other carriers such as Vodafone and Rogers may see it branded as the Thunder. So maybe we will see several models (9500, 9530, etc.). He also notes he thinks the Storm/Thunder is still on track for launch later this year…

    I don’t know why people are claiming the storm does not have Wi-Fi…show me on the box where it says that…the only point of interest from this low resolution image is that short list of items included in the box.

    I had one of these in 2009 and I there were some issues. It works like crap under water and is weird for a long time after, and when I ran over it the case cracked a little. Not very sturdy. Has a plasticky flavor.

    I’m really getting tired of Sprint not getting any exclusives. True they have the Samsung Instinct and the HTC Diamond. But, those phones are crap. I have the Sprint Version of the 8830 which is a nice phone. But I want another blackberry. I’ve had this one for about 2 years.

    I have a Blackberry 8830 World Edition, which is nice and all, but would like to see this phone on Sprint. I have an affinity for touch screens having come from using Palm PDAs, and only got into the Blackberry recently since they got rid of the awful jog dial. Honestly, for my purposes, it would come down to this or the iPhone for my next phone, and either would have to be international capable and usable on the network I chose(which isn’t going to be Verizon).

    I think Lymon is just a Berry-Hata. LOL.
