BlackBerry Storm price drops to $99 on Amazon, no rebate requiredLooks like the touch screen BlackBerry Storm has dropped to $99 on Amazon with no rebate required. Previously the price had been $249.99 with a $100 rebate, which brought the total to $149.99. It’s probably a result of Amazon competing against Verizon’s own buy one get one free sale going on through March 31, 2009.

If you don’t need two BlackBerry Storms, then why not head over to Amazon and get one for $99 (after a 2 year new subscriber agreement). I guess this should make anyone who wants one very happy.

Blackberry StormThe Blackberry Storm is by many accounts the single worst smartphone to ever wear the Blackberry logo. Customers who purchased the device have complained that its performance is sub-par and some reports claim Blackberry knew the device was buggy when it launched the Storm.

Research firm iSuppli has taken the Storm apart to find out how much the components and construction of the smartphone cost RIM. The cost for parts and construction is a bit under $203 according to iSuppli. To compare, the firm found that the parts and build bill for the iPhone 3G was under $175.

Hands On: BlackBerry Storm launching Friday

BlackBerry Storm hands on reviewAs I am sure you are all aware, Verizon Wireless is launching the much-anticipated BlackBerry Storm tomorrow. This device is RIM’s first delve into a touchscreen mobile phone and swing at taking some of the market share away from Apple and the iPhone. We had a chance to get our hands on the Storm on the eve of the launch day and had some fun playing with the touchscreen and its unique clicking technology.

Obviously the most interesting part of the Storm is the single big button of a screen so we’ll just cut to the chase. The touchscreen in general works as you would expect, sensing your touch on the glass and allowing you to scroll through things like lists, menus and across maps. What’s different about the touchscreen on the BlackBerry Storm which sets it apart from other touchscreen phones is that the glass display is like a single large, mechanical button.
