Vodafone compo confirms BlackBerry Storm incoming

'There's a storm coming.' 'I know.'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BlackBerry manufacturer RIM hasn’t confirmed the over-hyped Storm handset’s existence yet. But it's been confirmed which UK network the phone will land on, whenever it finally decides to remove the gag.

Vodafone has launched a “Win a BlackBerry Storm” competition, giving panting punters the opportunity to bag RIM’s first touchscreen BlackBerry just by registering their interest in the phone.

Of course, no competition would be complete without a picture of the mystery talker. So Vodafone’s kindly stuck up a CGI of Storm, which concurs with all the leaked Storm pictures that have appeared of late.

Vodafone’s not willing to let slip when the phone will be available in the UK, how much it’ll cost or what its official specifications are.

If you’re desperate to win a free Storm, here’s where you need to sign up. Get to the back of the line though, because Register Hardware saw it first!
