NYC First Touch Storm Grab Event!

Video and photo after the jump...check it out!

If pudding wrestling in Time Square for a BlackBerry Storm isn't something you'd normally considering doing for a free smartphone, the good news is you still have a chance to win a BlackBerry Storm in Time Square via Verizon's First Touch Storm Grab event. We made mention of it in the blogs earlier this week, but figured a friendly reminder wouldn't hurt. The photo above was actually taken by Joe who is on the scene (he emailed it in a few minutes ago when he was just 10 people away from going into the Storm chamber... haven't heard back how he did yet). The details:

  • WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008 between 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • WHERE: Manhattan - Father Duffy Square. Located in the northern triangle of Times Square on Broadway between 46th Street and 47th Street
  • WHAT: Participants will be eligible to win a BlackBerry Storm (with a $50 Verizon Wireless gift card for activation) and Bluetooth headsets

If you're in NYC, you best be heading to Time Square. Let us know in the comments how you did!

* Update: Joe got back to us... he WON A STORM! He also sent in a clip of the NYC Storm Grab in action!!

* Another update: Carl just sent in a photo. He and his two friends waited in line for over an hour, but they each won a Storm.. back to back to back!
