Verizon cuts Storm to $50

In an attempt to clear out inventory of its existing BlackBerry Storm 9530 handset, Verizon is pricing the device at just $50 on a two-year contract, and is giving away another BlackBerry of the same or lower price for free. This is believed to be an attempt to make room for the Storm 2 handset, the 9550, which has been rumored to be arriving at Verizon sometime soon. An official announcement is expected sometime in September with the device launching in October.

Other Verizon handsets that qualify as the second free version include the 8830 World Edition, Curve 8330 in silver or pink, Pearl Flip 8230, 8703e or another Storm. Verizon has done such buy one get one free promotions before.

The Storm 2 is expected to improve upon the existing device by adding Wi-Fi, an improved SurePress interface that includes piezoelectric feedback technology and BlackBerry OS 5.0. [via Phone Arena]
