The BG just posted an update on the Verizon BlackBerry Storm based on his latest intel. Here's the scoop, straight from BG's mouth:
it just went into technical acceptance at Verizon which usually takes around 3-4 weeks, and the device has been delayed internally by around 3-4 weeks while they work out the kinks (read: buggy and unresponsive) and polish it up. That puts us around a mid-November launch on Verizon. We've double confirmed that information, so it should be pretty accurate. Additionally, we heard from someone else that they've increased the marketing budget for the BlackBerry Storm just to give AT&T a little kick in the nuts for delaying the Bold so much.
So there ya have it. The fact that it's now in T.A. is a good thing. The fact that it's delayed... well.. that's something we are all starting to get a bit used to with BlackBerry stuff. Let's hope the kinks get worked out fast. I know there are a LOT of people wanting this device!
