Bell confirms Storm launch

Following yesterday's report of Canadian wireless provider Telus receiving the BlackBerry Storm smartphone, Bell has made a virtually identical announcement on Thursday that takes advantage of Telus' non-exclusivity for the first BlackBerry touchscreen device. Features are identical between the two providers, including the 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and autofocus, hybrid 3G network access, GPS mapping and a microSDHC card slot supported by 1GB of internal memory.

Bell is quick to point out the Storm will be able of operating on both CDMA and GSM networks worldwide and will likely supply the phone with the same roaming options as for the 8830 and other world BlackBerries. The Canadian wireless firm echoes Telus' cautious approach and has not revealed a specific launch date or pricing information for the Storm.
