BlackBerry Storm available Nov. 21 for $199

There's a Storm coming.

Verizon Wireless announced that its long-awaited smartphone, Research In Motion's BlackBerry Storm, will be available Nov. 21 for $199.99, with a two-year service contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Speculation around the Storm has swirled for months, most notably about pricing and launch date. The pricing makes it competitive with Apple's iPhone 3G, as the 8GB model also sells for $199 with a two-year contract from AT&T Mobility. The other big player in the market looking to cut into the iPhone's margins is the T-Mobile G1, which sells for $179 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile USA.
