T-Mobile UK Prepares For BlackBerry Storm 2 Launch

Folks have been enjoying their BlackBerry Storm2's for a while now in the UK but due to an exclusive deal with Vodafone, carrier selection has been slim. With T-Mobile UK's recent announcement that will change and consumers will have another choice when picking up the BlackBerry Storm 2. Sometime this month, the device will be released on the T-Mobile UK network.

In addition to the announcement of the Storm 2 launch, Phil Lander, T-Mobile’s account director at RIM,  also confirmed that they’ll have an official Twitter application shortly. We already knew that but to hear it come way of a Research In Motion employee gives us hope we'll see it sooner then later.

T-Mobile UK Prepares For BlackBerry Storm2 Launch


Almost pulled the trigger on a Verizon brand Storm 2 tonight! Don't know how much longer I can hold out for AT&T to get the Storm 2... or Storm 3! This could be good news for TMobile USA customers.

I would love for this to come out for Sprint. I like the email and scurity of Blackberry, but am really digging these touh screens lately.


I've been longing for others to have this device on their carriers. I'm on Verizon and I upgraded from a curve 8330 to a 9550 Storm and I absolutely love this phone despite what all the anti surepress haters have to say. I'd love to see more berryheads with this phone, so I say with an open heart that I hope this is a sign of things to come in the good ol' US-of-A. Also BGR reported a couple of days ago that RIM is currently working on OS versions 5.2 and 6.0 to follow soon after sometime in the near future.(new webkit browser with flash support?)I hope RIM delivers what they know we all want......

Additionally, O2 are due to get it in the UK too in a couple of week, pricing has been out for the last month: free on a £45/month 18-month contract, or £40/month 24-month contract.

I don't know what's going on with people, but the 9550 and 9520 are the exact same in GSM/HSPA Frequencies, they only made the 9550 for Verizon Exclusive USA. if there was no Exclusive for Verizon, then 9520 would be a tri band HSPA and AT&T, Rogers, Telus, Bell, Tmo Ect would have this phone.

No SueyChoy...I'm not new...been on here for 2 years...just don't really concern myself for a POS Storm...that's all. But I wanna thank you for setting all of us straight. I have seen the light from you. Thank you for the expert insight ;-)

I was waiting/hoping for T-Mobile UK to acquire the Storm2. It was rumored the voda exclusive deal would be ending last november, but obviously that didnt happen, anyway I had no choice but to leave T-Mob for Vodafone..3G receptions better on Voda anyway....although I miss the T-Mob customer service. Voda CS are a bunch of twats!

The only other benefit is that, with more users of the Storm2 maybe that will encourage more and more 3rd party developers to take notice and create better apps for the phone. Because at the moment it seems were getting sidelined.
