Pre-order the Blackberry Storm from Voda UK today

The Blackberry Storm 9500 is available to pre-order today from Vodafone.

You can get it free on contract for £35 per month.

But wait for it… it’s a TWENTY-FOUR month contract.

:: cough cough ::

TWO YEARS of your life contracted away to get this beauty.

Well, some might say it’s worth it.

Others might vomit in your face at the mere suggestion of an American-style 2-year commitment. You can get it on an 18-month contract, but you’ll probably need to cough up a little more per month.

I’m looking forward to getting some kind of hands-on with the device to check out it’s rather interesting touchscreen.

Here’s the pre-order link.

Who’s buying one?

  1. I love this advert. Man is at a party, chatting to at least one hot chick, and he walks off to draw smiley faces in the condensation in the window. What a geek. Must be a MIR reader 😉

  2. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I work for a company that provides BB support for a major ISP and that is enough to put me off for life regardless of how nice it looks.

    I have been damaged for life.

  3. The ad is silly and as for the Voda 24 month-contract… oh for the life of me!! Why o why… the Storm doesn't even have wifi!!!!
    Thing is that Voda saw that O2 managed to handcuff iPhone fans the first time around. Those getting the first iPhone paid an unprecedented (for the UK, land of subsidized contracts) amount of money up front to get theitr hands on one. So Voda wants to do the same…. is it worth it? I don'tt think so
