Blackberry 9500 Thunder-the newest i-phone challenger

According to IntoMobile, the iPhone killer from Research In Motion, Blackberry 9500 Thunder is all set to make its debut on Verizon’s CDMA Network. One change is that, the Thunder will be called the Blackberry 9530 a.k.a Blackberry Storm. RIM might have given this name as they would have thought that when 9530 is launched it would take the mobile world including the iPhone by “Storm”. The Blackberry Thunder, oops sorry, Blackberry Storm is the first touch screen enterprise phone from the Canada base RIM.
Earlier, I had posted about the Thunder was supposed to come in the month of September and after that there were reports confirming its arrival in the month of October 2008. Few weeks back some more details were revealed about the Thunder, like its QWERTY and SureType Keypads, Music Interface, Landscape and Portrait mode etc. These details have made the Thunder to be one of the most awaited phones this year. BlackBerry phones till now focused on the business user but with Thunder they are making it clear that multimedia capabilities in a business phone is the need of the hour. The Thunder sports a 480x320 fully-functional touch screen, a 3.2 mega pixel snapper and also a microSD slot for memory expansion. Apart from this, the good news for music lovers is that, the Thunder will have Rhapsody Music service for users to download music on the go.
