Verizon To Launch Storm Nov. 21
The Storm comes pre-loaded with applications such as Facebook and Flickr, but doesn't offer the more extensive selection of programs available through Apple's "App Store." Verizon's 3G network, however, could provide an advantage over AT&T's service for the iPhone when it comes to Web-surfing.
To help promote the Storm's release, Verizon last week kicked off "Storm Hunt," a scavenger-type game developed by Chicago-based mobile marketing agency Vibes Media. The campaign, which runs through Nov. 15 directs consumers to gather keywords from kiosks at 45 locations in Manhattan and then text them in for a chance to win daily BlackBerry Storms and $50 activation gift cards.--Mark Walsh
