BlackBerry Storm available in India starting January 15

Although Indian mobile users have probably hoped for this to happen in 2008, it’s only today that RIM and Vodafone Essar have announced the release of BlackBerry Storm 9500 in India.

Already on sale in North America and across Europe, the Storm is RIM’s first smartphone to lack a physical QWERTY keyboard and to have a touchscreen display. And it’s no ordinary touchscreen display, but a large 360 x 480 pixels clickable one that ensures an intuitive navigation.

Save for the physical keyboard, the smartphone has almost all the features you’d expect to find in a BlackBerry handset.

These include:  

  • GPS
  • BlackBerry Maps
  • Full HTML browser
  • Email
  • Document editor
  • A 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and flash
  • A 3.5mm headset jack
  • 1GB of internal memory
  • MicroSD card support, up to 16GB

BlackBerry Storm will be available starting January 15, exclusively via Vodafone Essar, for the price of Rs. 27,990 ($580).
