Vodafone has today begun taking pre-orders for what they hope will be the most successful BlackBerry yet. The BlackBerry Storm (9500) has a large, high resolution (480×360 pixel) screen and supports Vodafone’s high speed (HSDPA) network for high speed web browsing and email. It also comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera (with video recording) and multimedia features that really benefit from the amazing display.
Pricing starts at free of charge on a two-year contract, costing £35 per month with 600 minutes of calls and unlimited (or 3000 when you get into the real world of fair usage policies) texts on the Best for Text plan, or the same price for 700 minutes of calls, 250 texts and unlimited landline or Vodafone to Vodafone calls on Best for Talk. Each plan also includes unlimited Internet and email access (subject to the obligatory fair use policy, set at 500MB per month). Vodafone is also including six months of its satellite navigation service Find&Go free.
