This one is so funny that I simply have to share it with you:

More than 200 people had waited at a Verizon store in mid-town Manhattan early in the morning, many of whom were turned away after it ran out of the new phones less than an hour after opening at 8 a.m. The angry customers caused a ruckus and police came to restore order.

Verizon said hundreds of others were in lines outside its stores up and down the U.S. east coast, but added that it had “plenty of phones” and would keep getting more shipments. It declined to give specifics on inventory levels.

Anyone saw such a run when the Treo Pro came out? Hmm – not me…

  1. I work for Vodafone UK and the blackberry storm was built for the Vodafone network, however I have to say we are only dealing with preorders as the demand for this handset is out of this world. So for all those who caused a fight, it’s not worth it, you are all after the best phone out there, and due to it being the best you will shortly recieve yours. Blackberry Storm rules!!!
