Verizon and Vodafone (Update: and Telus!) finally speak up about the Storm

At long last, Verizon and Vodafone have officially acknowledged that they plan to offer the Storm in the coming weeks. Prepped to fit the needs of the enterprise user who may be tempted to sway from RIM, this much-coveted handset is the first touchscreen BlackBerry. With the 480×360 screen, 3.2 mp autofocus camera, Bluetooth 2.0, “ClickThrough” user selection for a button-like touch screen, 3.5mm headset jack, EVDO Rev. A and HSPA, 1 GB of internal memory, microSD (8 gigs included in the box), full HTML browser, both standalone and A-GPS, PDF/Word/Excel/Powerpoint support, quad-band radio (850/900/1800/1900), it’s a mighty stalwart contender against Apple’s finest (or just about anyone’s finest, for that matter).

Pricing and availability aren’t available – but if leaked Best Buy documents hold true, we’ll be seeing it by November 16th at the latest.

Full specs after the jump.

Update: According to the press release that just came down the pipes, TELUS will be a Storm-bringer for Canada.
