CrackBerry addicts have been counting down today like it was Christmas. It’s not Christmas, is it? That depends on whether or not you’ve been waiting for the BlackBerry Storm.
The unit has been receiving lackluster reviews. However, the one saving grace of the unit is that it now allows users to take endless keyboard clacking to a global level. It even comes with an international charger. Designed mainly for business customers, the unit includes a 3.2-megapixel camera, portable versions of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and a “clickable” 3.25-inch touchscreen. It’s also got Facebook and Flickr applications because, well… we don’t know why. Apparently, you can’t be all business all the time.
Available now, expect the Storm to blow gusts of cash right out of your wallet. The unit’s $200 price is after a $50 rebate, as well as a 2-year Verizon commitment.
