RIM BlackBerry Storm2 9550 (Verizon) "Unofficial" Unboxing

Verizon Wireless's new BlackBerry Storm2 9550 smartphone won't be available in the United States until later this week, but CIO.com's Al Sacco already got his thumbs on the device--and its packaging. Here's a look at what new BlackBerry Storm2 owners on Verizon can expect to find after opening up their new "toys."

Earlier today, Verizon Wireless announced its latest BlackBerry smartphone, Research In Motion's (RIM) BlackBerry Storm2 9550. The device won't be available publicly until Wednesday, October 28, but RIM was nice enough to pass on a Storm2 9550 to us early.

The packaging isn't final--check out image number three for an idea of what Verizon's box branding will look like--but everything else pictured below, excluding specific user guides, should be just what new Storm2 owners will see after unwrapping their new BlackBerry handhelds.

Stay tuned to CIO.com for a full review of the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 from Verizon Wireless. (We never review devices without spending adequate time beforehand, and I just got this unit today.)
