It’s nearly impossible to keep new products from being leaked today for most manufacturers. BlackBerry is no exception. For a week or more now reports and details of the BlackBerry Storm have been popping up online touting the next potential iPhone challenger.
Today BlackBerry made the Storm official and announced that the exclusive U.S. carrier will be Verizon and the UK carrier will be Vodafone. The handset is designed to run on Verizon’s 3G network in the States. The Storm forgoes the familiar QWERTY keyboard most BlackBerry devices use in favor of an iPhone-like touchscreen.
