BBerry Storm Next Week

Verizon's BlackBerry Storm launch could take place as early as next week, the company hints in a pre-release campaign sheet. The provider is reputedly set to start the public side of its marketing campaign on the 22nd for business customers and will reach out to a wider audience on October 1st. The details would also suggest a complete launch as soon as November 1st and cast doubt on a rumor of a multi-week delay.

The document has surfaced just as a direct marketing campaign is said to have begun; Verizon today reposed a briefly available teaser page for the Storm that provides no details other than to confirm the touchscreen BlackBerry's existence.

A launch in early November would put the 3G, CDMA/GSM hybrid phone's ship date just two weeks after the predicted date for the T-Mobile G1 running Android and would leave roughly two months for the Storm to drive holiday sales at Verizon, which until now has not had a full-touchscreen smartphone to face AT&T.
