Vodafone prices up first touchscreen BlackBerry

Storm to blow in on 11 November

High performance access to file storage

Vodafone has priced up Research in Motion's touchscreen BlackBerry, the Storm 9500, and it's going to giving it away.

Well, sort of. The iPhone-like handset will come free of charge, provided you're willing to cough of £35 a month for two years to get access to Vodafone's network.

RIM's BlackBerry Storm: yours for up to £500

Pay less per month, or choose a contract of 18 months' duration, and the price of the Storm itself rockets to £300. Only go for a year-long contract and you'll pay £500 for the phone.

RIM and Vodafone announced the Storm's UK debut earlier this month. The handset sports a touch-sensitive 3.25in, 480 x 360 display, and can connect at HSDPA speeds of up to 7.2Mb/s.

Storm has a 3.2-megapixel camera and GPS. It'll play music and movie files stored on Micro SDHC cards.

Keen to get your hands on one. Vodafone is taking advance orders from today.
