Vodafone will launch the Blackberry Storm on November 11. The Storm, Blackberry’s first touchscreen phone, is exclusive to Vodafone and will be available for free if you take a £35 contract. That’s £5 a month cheaper than the T-Mobile G1 Google phone. The Storm has a similar specification to both the G1 and iPhone, with a 3.2 megapixel camera, full size touchscreen, fully integrated email client and GPS.
The one notable omission to the Storm’s feature set is that, unlike the G1 and iPhone, it doesn’t support Wi-Fi which means you are totally reliant on Vodafone’s 3G network wherever you are, which could get expensive when you’re abroad.
