BlackBerry Storm flattens order system

Network World (US) reports that while Verizon expected the BlackBerry Storm to be popular, but it didn't foresee demand would crash its online ordering portal.

On Friday afternoon, Verizon stores couldn't process any more orders for the Storm, because the system was overloaded by orders and crashed for an hour from 3pm while Verizon's online portal for ordering the Storm went down: clicking on the 'Buy Now' button on the homepage prompted a message saying the items wasn't available.
