Preparing for the Storm 2? Verizon BlackBerry Storm Now $50S

Here is a good hint that Verizon is trying to clear out its BlackBerry Storm inventory to make room for the rumored October arrival of the Storm 2. As of today, the first touchscreen BlackBerry is now only $50 on "America's Most Reliable Wireless Network."

If you aren't interested in what RIM did to improve its SurePress typing system on the Storm 2 or having Wi-Fi on your handset, you might as well pick up the $50 smartphone. And if you do Verizon's buy one BlackBerry, get the second free promo is still going on. [Verizon via Phone Arena]
