Verizon accidentally reveals upcoming BlackBerry Storm pricing

RIM BlackBerry Storm

Verizon accidentally revealed pricing for the upcoming BlackBerry Storm when its posted the details to its externally available staging server. The pages are no longer available but they were not removed before screen captures of the information could be captured.

Verizon will offer the BlackBerry Storm for USD$219 with a two-year service contract. The price will increase to USD$289 with a one-year contract and USD$519 without a contract. None of the prices included any rebates so final prices could be a bit lower by the time Verizon formally announces the Storm.

Take the pricing with a grain of salt as the screen captures also indicate the Storm comes with a QWERTY keyboard. The pricing and description may simply be a cut-and-paste from another device.

A release date has not been announced yet but is widely to be expected to be sometime this month.
