BlackBerry Storm for Verizon Wireless Enterprise Customers
Posted: 21-Nov-2008 [Source: Verizon]

[IT Managers and devoted BlackBerry users will experience the security, reliability and familiarity of the BlackBerry platform, both at home and abroad.]

Basking Ridge, NJ -- Tech-reliant professionals who expect to stay connected to the office will be able to experience all of the security, reliability and familiarity of the BlackBerry® platform with the new BlackBerry® Storm(TM) -- exclusively available tomorrow in the United States to Verizon Wireless customers. The highly-anticipated BlackBerry Storm smartphone's powerful communications features, global connectivity and personal productivity advantages are designed to satisfy the highly sensitive needs of enterprise customers.

Business customers have relied on the BlackBerry platform for years for its ease of use and advanced security features that help protect their intellectual property. The BlackBerry Storm smartphone incorporates all of the trusted security features while giving customers the latest technology, including the world's first "clickable" touch screen for intuitive and efficient navigation.

"The growing mobile workforce has changed how IT managers and CIOs protect their intellectual property, no matter where their employees are located," said Eugene Signorini, vice president of Yankee Group's Enterprise Research group. "The BlackBerry platform offers inherent security features they expect, packaged with a proven wireless voice and data network, and the gold standard for enterprise e-mail."

Today's business climate includes a sizeable mobile workforce that needs to access proprietary information remotely. For the CIO, it means managing hundreds of devices connected to a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server with behind-the-firewall access. The BlackBerry Storm offers a secure, reliable and trusted option for IT managers who need to ensure confidential information is delivered in a timely and efficient manner.

"IT departments and CIOs who want to meet the needs of today's growing mobile workforce will appreciate the fact that the BlackBerry security protocols are all available with the BlackBerry Storm," said Mark Bartolomeo, vice president of enterprise data sales for Verizon Wireless. "The comfort level with the familiar BlackBerry platform makes it easy for a CIO to decide the BlackBerry Storm fits the needs of employees and the company, delivering a strong return on investment."

The BlackBerry Storm is not only a stylish smartphone, it's also a workhorse for enterprise decision makers, helping them stay connected to the people and business information that matter most to them. With the BlackBerry Storm smartphone, business customers can connect globally in more than 200 countries for voice and more than 150 countries for data worldwide. In the U.S., Verizon Wireless customers will benefit from the nation's most reliable wireless voice network and the pervasiveness of Verizon Wireless' reliable high-speed 3G Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A (Rev. A) network. Incorporating the world's first "clickable" touch screen, the BlackBerry Storm lets business customers conduct research on the Internet, access their intranet and edit Microsoft® Word, Excel® or PowerPoint® documents directly on their BlackBerry Storm while on-the-go.

The BlackBerry Storm will be available beginning Nov. 21 in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. Customers will receive the rebate in the form of a debit card; upon receipt, customers may use the card as cash anywhere debit cards are accepted. To learn more, visit
