RIM's BlackBerry Storm For Dummies: Fake Storms Appear In Verizon Stores
You know a product launch is nearing when the dummies show up at retail locations. No, I'm not talking about your fifth cousin. A CrackBerry Forum user recently visited a Verizon Wireless retail store and was pleased to discover mock-ups (a.k.a, "dummies") of the BlackBerry Storm to play with. Verdict? It's heavy.

It's heavy.You know when you go to a wireless retail store and most of the phones they have for you to touch and play with don't work? They have a nice little sticker on the screen simulating what the user interface should look like, but the phones themselves aren't operational. These are called dummies.
I was at the verizon store and me and my dad were talking about upcoming phones and we were talking about the touch diamond & when the verizon guy shows us this thunder dummy he had laying around so i got to mess with it and boy is it heavyy, but the back steel part feels nice and cold on your hands :] well here are some shots of the phones. Oh and that push button screen thingy yeah its not as hard actually its pretty easy to press.
I am not surprised about the weight. According to the facts we know for certain, the BlackBerry Storm is a dual-mode GSM / CDMA phone, meaning it will work with Verizon Wireless's CDMA network here in the United States, but can roam onto GSM data networks in Europe and elsewhere. Most dual-mode phones I've seen are larger than average because they are packing two different radios in there. And, knowing RIM, it stuffed a huge battery in the device to be able to handle powering that large touch screen. (Pictured here.)
