Verizon Targets November 21 For Storm Release

The word is already out - Verizon Wireless will be offering the new BlackBerry Storm this November 21st for $199.99, and that is after you tie yourself down to a two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate. This option is still more expensive than an iPhone 3G, but hey, perhaps Verizon will get some mileage out of the Storm knowing that this is the first touchscreen smartphone from RIM and is the first global 3G phone from Verizon. Each purchase comes with a 8GB microSD memory card to help you get started.
