The first ever touchscreen Blackberry handset, Storm, has been confirmed after Vodafone offered the device as a competition prize on its website.
It is not known exactly when the device will be available yet, but the fact that Vodafone is already pushing it suggests it could hit stores in time for the Christmas market. RIM has so far remained tight-lipped over the device, and is still yet to officially announce it.
In the picture of Vodafone’s website, the Storm has Vodafone’s logo on the front of the device, which suggests that the operator will range the device exclusively.
Vodafone refused to comment on which tariffs it will be available or what specs will be offered. An official launch date of the device is expected imminently.
