There is no official launch date for the BlackBerry Storm from Verizon Wireless yet. A leaked Best Buy inventory sheet on BGR has a stock-in date of November 16th for the BlackBerry Storm.
Some information suggests that Verizon Wireless stores would start selling the BlackBerry Storm on the 15th of November.
Other predictions are saying the launch will be after the 20th as the Verizon First Look First Touch events end then. So the only thing that can be said for sure is that the Storm is not launching in October, but the BlackBerry Bold is.
To pass the time waiting for the Storm, you can watch this BlackBerry Storm Video we published yesterday.
