Vodafone Now Accepting Pre-Orders for the BlackBerry Storm 2

blackberry_storm_9520_left_angle_g1Vodafone is the first to take pre-orders for the upcoming BlackBerry Storm 2 and they plan to deliver on October 26th.  We had a feeling Vodafone would be the first to make an official announcement.  A couple of early week stories predicted this and it’s just the first of many official announcements to come.

It looks they will offer the phone for free on a 2 year contract with a monthly fee £35 or more.  The Vodafone Storm 9520 will be slightly different from other carriers but for the most part all features are the same as the 9550.  Customers in the UK and Ireland will be the first to get their hands on the new Storm 2.  Shortly after it become available in Germany, Netherlands and Spain.
