Update 4: Wow, now the Verizon Video (linked to below) is only available to Verizon employees who enter a username/password. No longer available for public viewing direct from Verizon.

Update 3: Verizon Storm site is live again! www.verizonwireless.com/storm

Update 2: The Storm teaser site still appears to be down, but Verizon has now made the Minute with Mike BlackBerry Storm announcement video available for public viewing! CLICK HERE TO WATCH! >>

Update: We're here for a good time, not a long time! It seems Verizon's Storm page is no longer working (for me and quite a few others anyways). Click the image above and see where you go.... I'm now getting kicked back to the Verizon Wireless b2c homepage. **

If you can call it a site! Not much there, but you can enter your email address to sign up for Email Alerts on the upcoming Verizon BlackBerry Storm. Hopefully they'll update it in the days and weeks ahead with more images and video. I can't wait to see the Storm in FULL OUT ACTION! Think the scrolling action will be silky and smooth?

Just point your browser to www.verizonwireless.com/storm

"It is both the BlackBerry Thunder and the BlackBerry Storm. Yes, it’s going to go by both names.

Now, it’s not like the Thunder and the Storm will be 100% identical. The BlackBerry Storm will be the CDMA version that will find itself over at Verizon, whereas the BlackBerry Thunder is the GSM model that will eventually end up at places like Rogers and Vodafone. Aside from the CDMA/GSM business, the specs should be much the same."

would anybody happen to know when tmobile would be getting the blackberry thunder

Rob B

No offense...but we don't even know when VERIZON is getting... and they have an exclusivity contract as long as they keep up sales....

So T-Mobile might get it next year...they might get it in 5 years... they might never get it...?

Kim817

but from what i remember Verizon will be the exclusive sellers of this phone and if all goes well they maintain those exclusive handsets .

But if sales or not as good as it should be MAYBE then it might be sold among other carriers .

So it's pretty much a wait and see within the next few months into early '09 .

I too was able to sign up for e-mail updates on the Verizon website and now it is gone. Eeek I hope it comes back, or that we hear something soon. It is making me crazy. I'm checking online multiple times a day now for updates. Thanks to the person who pointed out the banner. I also found it when I searched "Storm" on the Verizon website. I guess that is a good sign. I hope I get to buy this phone in 2008!!

SOADFreak1989

Damn Verizon being a total tease... I want my updates dammit!

SteveStorm

I was looking at it tonight when they killed the site!

Who cares about the "updates"? Crackberry and Engadget tell ya everything before any of those things get any information out...

The scrolling better be smooth and fast or else it will suck. Also it better be sensitive to the touch, if it has all of this it should be a great seller.

Just checked out the page;could be possible. Or it could be just a malfunction as someone suggested. Wish we had more info from deep within..

Fightin Loon

AT&T did that with the Bold how many months ago?

Wake me up when I can order it.

I really think this is a marketing scheme. Rim hasn't even announced the device yet. Just like the BG said they don't want customers going to other carriers so there doing this so they can stay put. Frankly I think its good marketing look at all the hype and the talk its been getting. Leak after leak after leak. They know what their doing.

I used the Search text box on VZW website and was taken to a page with a few Blackberry results. The funny part was the banner ad at the top of the page. It is for the Storm and asks you to click for more details. However, when you click you are taken to B2C page. So the banner ads are starting. I wonder when the site will be back up with more details.

My Verizon Wireless Sales Rep gave me November 1st for tentative release date.

Someone at the mall the other day said October 13th...

I've had no problems going to the site... if you do have a problem with it, try right clicking on the picture and opening it in a new window. That is whats been working for me.

This phone looks awesome but EVERYONE is going to have one... I'm not the type to go with the general public... I'm kinda weery about going with it too because almost everytime a new device has come out its like the beta version until they get the kinks out... Now I know RIM is REALLY good about their blackberrys but they have had to release the 8120 pearl to include video... I dunno I'll wait to see how it goes with other people. I know a bunch of people who work for verizon... They'll let me in on the juicy details lol

The video link is down. :(

Guess they don't want us non VZ employees in. For me, it opened a trouble ticket page, something to the effect that if you are still getting this page after following setup instructions . . . fill out this form. Spoil sports!

I just checked the link and it is back up. I was able to successful register for notification.
