Verizon Wireless and RIM Unleash Storm

October 8, 2008

Today I published a story in BusinessWeek about the new phone from Research In Motion, the Storm. Verizon Wireless and Vodafone struck a life-time exclusive deal to offer the first Blackberry touchscreen device.

I also break the news that Verizon Wireless has jumped on the latest wireless trend: It is setting up an online bazaar where customers will be able to download a range of games, tools, and other applications for use on the Storm. On Oct. 9, the company will release a toolkit designed to help software developers build applications for the application store, dubbed the App Zone.
