Verizon Blackberry Pricing and Best Buy ready to take pre-orders?

leave a comment »

Update: Best Buy is taking pre-orders in the stores starting today. You have to go the store, they will not take it online. Though, be warned that neither the launch date nor the price have been announced yet.

A few days back, Verizon Wireless launched its scavenger hunt in New York for the Blackberry Launch. As part of the official rules of the contest, it has hinted at the possible pricing of Blackberry Storm. According to the fine print, the approximate retail value of a Blackberry Storm 9500 along with a $50 gift card is $549. In other words, the Storm costs $499. If that is the case, then I would expect the phone will cost less with 2-year contract, maybe even $100-$199.

In another news, Best Buy is reportedly taking pre-orders for the Blackberry Storm starting tomorrow with $50 deposit. According to Engadget Mobile, this has been confirmed in only one store. No official release has been put out yet.
