We just got our hands on this document detailing the latest release dates for the Storm on Verizon. Just be careful, we have all learned that target launch dates come and go quicker than a Sprint subscriber. With that said, this information comes directly from a good source of ours, so we’d wager on this being pretty accurate. Here’s what we’ve learned:

  • 123 corporate Verizon stores will be “pre-launching” the device on November 20th. That means that the 123 stores will have Storms in stock to demo for customers and to pre-order the device for them. This is only for high-end VZW customers, and people that got the mailing that went out. The general public, as we’re informed, can not just “mosey on down.”
  • November 24th (and November 25th?) is the general availability date which includes corporate sales, telesales, and indirect dealers.

The confirmed pricing for the BlackBerry Storm is indeed dude, we’ve been saying this foreverz around $199.99 after MIR with a two-year agreement. We were also told that corporate store inventory will be full, full, and full of Storms. Apparently, our tipster tells us that the latest build of the unit is incredibly stable, and touch input is very much improved. So, there ya go! Let’s hope this pans out… Verizon really needs to make a Thanksgiving launch. Larger size shot is after the jump.

Thanks, NotHTCKid!
