BlackBerry Storm In High Demand but Low Supply

Research In Motion (RIM) BlackBerry Storm, their first touch screen smart phone debuts tomorrow but some are saying there might not be enough of them to go around. There have been reports of a major last minute flaw in the device that caused them to recall a number of the devices so there are fewer devices being sold tomorrow.

Apparently there was a security flaw that required them to re-flash the devices, delaying shipping and ultimately causing fewer units from being shipped to stores for resale.

This is not a good thing considering the amount of users eager to upgrade. Tech Fragments spoke to several Verizon customers that are currently using a Blackjack. All of the ones which are eligible for an upgrade hope to grab one of the new BlackBerry Storm’s.

The Black Berry Storm smart phone is the first touch-screen Black Berry to hit the market. The Storm will operate on the Verizon 3G network, ties in BlackBerry email, calendaring, messaging, and it also boasts mobile web features. It also features a GPS, video and music streaming, video-recording and more. The most advertised feature is the clickable like touchscreen that makes an audible clicking noise and depresses slightly as a user types on the screen, something that makes the Storm a cut above the rest.

The Storm will be in stores tomorrow, November 21st, and will cost $199 with mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.
