They are of a "dummy" model, but they're pics. ;)

I was just in the new Verizon shop here in West Palm tonight and not a single sighting in the whole store. The CSR's were all busy. I am glad you posted these... thanks...

Dummy models are so much better than smart models...

Good find on the pics. The phone looks great, and almost makes me want to move to VZW.

Don't. Just get a 9500, unlock it and it'll work on AT&T and their 3G network ;)

It makes no sense to me why there would be 1/2 inch of nothingness below the bottom of the display and the top of the buttons. Why not make the phone that much shorter?!

Once again it's a dummy phone. Thanks to Bberry for the pics. Tried to edit, wouldn't let me.

it's supposed to be the same size width-wise compared to the curve... but in those pics... it looks much wider... like the 88xx series... maybe the Storm was just held closer to the camera making it look bigger or something... I really hope it's not too much wider than the curve.

can anyone confirm its size?

There's a bit more to a cell phone than the facade. I'm sure if they could fit everything into a smaller package they would!

I read what another wrote to you. As a friendly suggestion, you may want to put your site as a signature. so you do not have to advertise every post. Then again, i am just a poster on this site and maybe others disagree.

Those animated GIF's are misleading as they show the display area taking up all the space from top to bottom - which is how I wish it actually was. But it's not.

No... we agree.

Storm Review: Please stop cross-posting your "news" in EVERY thread. It's almost the equivalent of spam. I understand you're trying to create traffic for your blog (or whatever you want to call it)... but spamming all of the threads isn't going to do it.

Try creating ONE thread where you post all of your updates as they arrive (like everyone else does...hehe). This will be much less annoying ;)
