Verizon's much-anticipated touch-screen multimedia super-device, the Blackberry Storm, will finally be released in a couple weeks (no "official" date yet - projected to be 11/23), and Verizon already has 70,000 pre-orders! If you're one of the many folks excited about the Storm and would like to make sure one is reserved for YOU, 3Gstore is happy to announce that we are now taking pre-orders for the Blackberry Storm - and new Verizon customers can save $50 by pre-ordering with 3Gstore!
Verizon's price is estimated to be $219, which means NEW Verizon customers signing up for a 2-year contract can get the Storm for just $179. The $50 discount will only be available to NEW Verizon customers (remember, if you're a customer with another carrier, you can keep your number in most cases) - if you're an existing customer looking to upgrade you can still pre-order with 3GStore at Verizon's price.
Why all the hype, you ask? What are these 70,000 loons lining up for?
