RIM just put up a cool interactive BlackBerry Storm BlackBerry 101 page over at BlackBerry.com (try saying that three times fast) as well as a BlackBerry Storm Support page. If want to discover more about the Storm's features or are looking for help or have specific questions about the capabilities of the device, you'll want to check these pages out!

HAHA. Soon as taken on its own meaning; I've been hearing 'SOON' for more than a month now, LOL. I wonder how soon is "Soon".

Confirmed last Friday by one of the guys in my local Vodafone shop.

Will the storm play youtube videos?

Kody2323

Yesy it will play you tube video but the video that you record from the storm wont be uploadable.

Has anyone notice 9 am Nov 23 on the screen? Possible release date and time?

relacson

where do u see that? it says "october 23"

It says 9:00 am OCT. 23rd. pending disaster it will probably drop friday the 21st. Friday before thanksgiving. Gives them a week to decide how to work black friday. Releasing black friday would be a real mistake. One glitch, one mistake and the launch would go down as a big bust.

It would be ideal for it to come out b4 black friday..

That interactive video was great..made me want the phone even more (although i didnt think that was possible!) cant wait...

Over the weekend I stoped into a local verizon store just to look around and ask about the blackberry storm. I asked if there was any type of pre-order. They salseman said he can take down my information and they would call when they are available. He also mentioned it would be available no later than 27NOV08.

If you guys didn't notice, I just caught it out the corner of my eye, but the desktop software was 4.7 so a new update has to be coming soon. I'm guessing when that drops that the storm isn't gonna be too far behind.

Could the october 23rd date on the blackberry storm used in the blackberry storm 101 tutorial be a hint at the actual release date ???

ausch

It might of hinted to the actual release date if the date on the phone hasn't already passed.

gaget

What do you mean sorry US. Does that mean the US will not release on the same date?

No Youtube? are you serious?

Gaget

"The Blackberry Bold can.
And the Storm is the same operating system version.
So the answer is: yes."

I think it will.

yahamesz

It will be released this Friday in the UK... well hopefully :)
