Could the Thunder also be a Storm?

Latest BlackBerry offering could be renamed

As we told you last week the name of the latest BlackBerry, the Thunder, will take its name from the RIM development code name. The touch screen BlackBerry Thunder will make its appearance on Verizon first in the US.

Outside the U.S., however, we are hearing that the Vodafone version may instead carry the name of Storm, rather than Thunder. We have been unable to confirm that this is the case, but have heard this from more than one source.

The official launch of the Thunder on Verizon still appears to be on track for October as we reported last week. We have not received any word that the release date has changed or been moved.

In other BlackBerry news, Telus is offering a new Pink version of the BlackBerry 8830 Curve. The Pink version seems to at least for the moment be exclusive to Telus in Canada. The new Pink color is the second exclusive color to be announced as of late with the Black Emerald version of the Curve on Orange that made its appearance last week.
