Vodafone BlackBerry Storm pricing revealed: Crazy expensive [Updated]

Vodafone BlackBerry Storm pricing revealed: Crazy expensive [Updated]

The BlackBerry Storm has had its moment of glory in the shape of some pleasantly positive reviews, but while impressing in the hand and on the tech sheet is one thing, doing the same on your monthly statement is quite another.  Vodafone have revealed their European pricing for the touchscreen RIM smartphone, and it's certainly not cheap.  The lowest of the four monthly plans, Perfect Choice Access 100 at €49.99 ($64), gets you the Storm for €109.99 ($141) but a mere 100 minutes and 100 text messages included, together with just 1GB of BlackBerry email.

Update: Tony points out in the comments that these are the Irish prices, rather than the general European figures.  Unfortunately our Irish friends have had to get used to paying far more than the rest of us, which means that a) these prices are a relatively good deal in Ireland, and b) prices in the rest of Europe are likely to be considerably lower.

LG's "G" brand continues to represent the cutting edge in top-tier smartphone hardware.
