RIM touch screen to appear at the end of October
As everyone now knows, Verizon has the exclusive on the new RIM Storm which was formally known as the Thunder, but news has reached us that Vodafone will get the exclusive on the new BlackBerry touch screen device in the U.K.
While it was first thought that outside the U.S. the Storm would retain the Thunder branding, but this is not to be, as the new BlackBerry touch screen will be known as the Storm everywhere.
Vodafone will begin offering the Storm by the end of October, which has it ideally positioned for lots of holiday sales. The Storm is expected to do well this holiday season and Vodafone is expected to cash in.
