BlackBerry Storm shipping for Bell

Bell BBerry Storm Ships

Bell today quickly followed on the heels of Telus by shipping its version of the BlackBerry Storm. Like its closer rival, the Bell version has the same 3.2-megapixel camera, 1GB of internal storage and dual-mode networking; it similarly carries an 8GB microSDHC card, but drops the preloaded music in favor of built-in access to Bell's streaming radio and video channels, including some Sirius stations. Pricing is a match at $250 on a three-year contract with voice and data worth $45 or more.

The carrier inadvertently confirms the very low supplies of the Storm in Canada with its launch and says that the Storm is available today only from certain Bell stores in the Greater Toronto Area; other stores in the country receive the phone tomorrow, though the company doesn't name these outlets.

Both the Bell and Telus Storm launches are taking place about two months after the original announcement and are believed to have been delayed by poor initial firmware that required Verizon and Vodafone to issue fixes.
