Verizon release in U.S. has people excited

RIM’s answer to the iPhone is well known to everyone by now as the BlackBerry Thunder. However, it would appear that the excitement over the BlackBerry Thunder is much higher than many of us anticipated.

While Verizon will get the Thunder first here in the U.S., we now are confirming the tentative launch date will be October 8th if the Thunder can clear the final Verizon hurdles.

As for additional information on the specs of the Thunder itself, our moles claim that it will sport a 3.2 megapixel camera, a MicroSD slot, and the ability to download and purchase Rhapsody tracks over the air.

It seems that the excitement over the first touch screen challenger to the iPhone has peaked the interest of many consumers. However, we wonder if RIM will be able to deliver a device that can truly compete with the iPhone.

We do think that it is possible that this could be a bigger hit than expected for RIM, but Verizon is not known for being able to launch new innovative phones well; and they will need to pull out all of the stops to grab attention for the Thunder. This will give Verizon an offering to compete with the iPhone, which has been grabbing all of the headlines lately.
