With a powerful marketing campaign for the BlackBerry Storm and fused by rumors of supply shortage, Verizon is seeing big lines outside of its retail stores where customers are waiting to get their hands on the BlackBerry Storm smartphones.
Here are some images of folks waiting in line to get the Storm:
Hundreds of customers lined up outside Verizon Wireless Communications Stores before dawn today (11/21) to be among the first to purchase the BlackBerry Storm. The Storm went on sale for the first time today and is available exclusively in the U. S. to Verizon Wireless customers.
Daniel Salois, Jr. is first in line to purchase a BlackBerry Storm at the Verizon Wireless Communications Store in Toledo, Ohio. Daniel lined up at 5:50 am on Thursday, Nov. 20, more than 24 hours before the Storm goes on sale.
Verizon Wireless retail sales reps Joe Chueguean and Azim Salmon at the Washington DC L Street store welcome the first DC customers to the Blackberry Storm.
