Blackberry Storm 2 Arriving October 28th For $180

A while back we announced that the Blackberry Storm 2 was just around the corner for Verizon Blackberry users. Now we’ve received official word that the device will launch on October 28th for $180. That price comes at a price of $179.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and the signing of a two year contract.

So what will you get for $179.99? How about a 3.25 inch display that offers 480 x 360 pixels resolution with capacitive touchscreen capabilities and a much improved SurePress setup. The device also features EVDO Rev.A with UMTS/HSPA 2100 and WiFi b/g data connections.

The Storm 2 also comes equipped with Blackberry’s newest 5.0 OS, while also featuring 2GB internal memory and a micrSDHC card slot that can support up to 16GB of additional memory. Next, throw in a 3.2MP autofocus camera that also offers image stabilization and a flash alongside a 1400mAh battery with 5.5 hours talk time and you’re left with a very nice device that should do wonders for replacing your Blackberry Storm.

Other Features Include:

  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • Proximity sensor
  • Rhapsody music
  • You can pre-order your device or pick it up at time of release, either way it may be worth getting rid of that old Storm and it’s awful 1st Gen. SurePress technology. [SlashGear]
